Stondri MVT prevents moisture from destroying floors in applications with existing concrete or new construction.
Curve Panels install exactly like drywall but bridge the gap between small radius vinyl trim and the smallest radius that it is possible to bend conventional drywall.
YIT Germany GmbH has developed modular high-safety laboratories that meet biosafety levels BSL-3 and BSL-4. The multifunctional high-safety laboratories are manufactured as container or structural steel parts and are then assembled and put into operation at the user’s premises.
Terralite offers a very high thermal value and has been successfully used in Europe for over a decade, resulting in energy cost savings of up to 40 percent, when compared with standard building structures and materials.
The industry has met little success in its search for carbon-free methods of manufacturing steel. The idea for the new method, Sadoway says, arose when he received a grant from NASA to look for ways of producing oxygen on the moon — a key step toward future lunar bases.
The full TRI project includes 3 components; the Institute, Bio-Pharmaceuticals Australia (BPA) which is a pharmaceutical manufacturing scale up facility located on the site, and a refurbishment within the adjacent hospital building for clinical trials associated with the research undertaken in TRI.
The focus of the new division will be on the GxP, Research Animal Care and USP<797> / <823> markets, with the goal of providing Owners with a facility and program that will meet stringent FDA, USDA, EMEA, AAALAC-I and State Pharmacy Control Board requirements.
The Consolidated Forensic Laboratory (CFL) is an award winning science facility designed to provide the District of Columbia with critical public safety and health science infrastructure. Co-locating the Department of Forensic Sciences (DFS) and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME), the CFL provides advanced laboratory and work facilities designed for the safety of the analysts and the public.

Since its opening, the program experienced their best year of recruiting, submitted three grant proposals from new collaborations and held numerous events and symposiums in the new common areas—breathing new life into the program and the quad.
Outdated internal equipment heat gain data can result in oversized systems and higher operating costs, yet it is one of the most difficult areas for engineers to define. To assist the building environment industry in defining these loads and designing more cost-efficient systems, internal equipment heat gain and load density data have been updated in the newest edition of the ASHRAE Handbook.
According to a new report from BCC Research, the market for laboratory automation will grow at a 6.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $3.8 billion in 2017. Market segments such as forensics and agriculture are just two of the new segments expected to increase their use of laboratory automation over the next five years.
In an effort to accelerate sustainable development around the world, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), creators of the LEED green building program, announced a new campaign offering free LEED certification to the first projects to certify in the 112 countries where LEED has yet to take root.
Georgia Institute of Technology’s Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions Laboratory (CNES) began with a healthy respect for the energy demands of modern laboratory environments. The 42,000-square-foot, $20-million CNES is an open, shop-like facility divided into three basic space typologies.
