National Disease Research Institute Lab FIt-Out in Philadelphia
Philadelphia, PA - Gardner/Fox provided construction management services to complete an interior fit-out of 1,845 square foot of laboratory space on the 9th floor at 3711 Market Street in Philadelphia. In order to prepare, preserve and ship human tissues and organs for scientific research, the National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) required a Work Lab, Bio-Safety Area, and Freezer Room housing fourteen tissue freezers and liquid nitrogen storage tanks.
Amenities included chemical resistant work surfaces, fire rated and acid resistant casework, a high-volume fume hood with constant volume bypass, and independent mechanical systems for heating and cooling.
The work was completed inside of six weeks, including the procurement of specialty items.
