This facility replaces aging laboratory and vivarium infrastructure on CDC's main campus and co-locates the remainder of the National Center for Infectious Diseases functions from other locations in Atlanta.

We worked with CDC laboratory users groups to ensure the program accommodates user needs, emphasizing integration with the campus and highly interactive work environments within the containment barriers.

Precise coordination was required to relocate existing campus utility infrastructure and add to the power grid while keeping the entire campus operational. 

By locating the mechanical space on the perimeter of the building, the design eliminates traditional physical barriers between lab blocks and increases the visibility of the engineering, celebrating the facility's mechanical ingenuity.
