Center for Prions & Protein Folding Diseases
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.
