What We've Built

UNC GENETIC MEDICINE BUILDING LAB RENOVATION - Chapel Hill, NC

The HIV CURE laboratory renovation project, located within the Genetic Medicine Building at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, consists of a renovation of approximately 1,040-square feet of active laboratory and research space as well as the addition of a laboratory sterilizer. The project, which includes the creation of two BSL-2 and Tissue Culture labs, was closely coordinated with the facilities department in order to adequately communicate the needs for service shutdowns so as to not disrupt ongoing laboratory experiments. The project included extensive HVAC, electrical, plumbing and laboratory gas modifications that occurred without disrupting any occupants. The installation of a lab sterilizer and subsequent installation of a 6" steam vent riser from the second floor to the roof was closely coordinated with the building staff to ensure the interruption of the existing sterilizers would be minimally impacted.
