Located at 112th Street and 87th Avenue, the Environmental Engineering building was built in 1965 and was originally known as the Household Economics Building. RPK was engaged to provide a major renovation to the basement, main and second floor.

The new facility includes a class +2 bio-containment facility containing ne, state of the art laboratories, terrariums, aquariums, offices & clean room all in one building. Day to day operation is made easy with over 27,000 square feet of laboratory, bio-containment & communal space. Massive autoclaves, cage & bottle washers and other state of the art equipment were integrated into the space seamlessly, providing containment seals between each area and maximizing workflow.

The new energy-efficient heating and ventilation systems required an addition to the south face to provide building services to the basement, main and second floors.
