US EPA Mid-Continent Ecology Division
The EPA’s Mid-Continent Ecology Division conducts innovative research and predictive modeling to document and forecast the effects of pollutants on the integrity of watersheds and freshwater ecosystems. Our team performed phased renovations of seven labs that included a clean room, biology lab, fish sample prep lab, a wet lab, and an organic chemistry lab. These projects required complicated MEP upgrades and close coordination of schedule, as the facility was in operation throughout all seven phases. The labs were completely demolished and renovated with new finishes, casework, high performance low velocity fume hoods, electric and plumbing necessary for specialized lab work, and conversion of a constant volume air handling unit to a variable air volume unit with laboratory air flow controls.
