Geisinger Health System

,

Clinical Laboratory
Danville, PA

The new lab incorporates lean planning and Geisinger’s minimum turn time. The clinical pathology floor offers a loop circulation system around open core lab functions and equipment. Enclosed containment and secure functions, including BSL-3, Microbiology, Molecular, Forensic and Toxicology Labs, are organized around the outside of the loop. Second floor anatomic pathology labs staff use communicating stairs to communicate easily with others. Lab grade access flooring allows power, data, and piped utilities anywhere below the core lab floor. Modular lab casework can be easily changed as testing technologies advance and automated testing systems are installed. A color-coded drainage system clearly separates flammable liquids from bio-waste. Anatomic pathology is laid out as an assembly line for more efficient flow high-volume operations. A “stat” histology lab connecting to the operating suite allows surgeons to interact with pathologists for involvement in the treatment stream. Third floor vertical storage saves floor space. Programmable systems offer computerized access to and control of inventory.

Alcon Laboratories

Mathias Lab
Edgewater, MD

This $29M project includes a new 94,000 sf laboratory addition to the existing Mathias Lab building.  EwingCole performed a facilities assessment of the existing Mathias Lab building, which confirmed the need for expansion to accommodate increased and more efficient research activities in keeping with their mission.  The existing building required select renovation including the relocation or “rezoning” of numerous labs and offices, and the creation of storage facilities.  Designers used Laboratories for the 21st Century (Labs21) design guidelines for project development.  The overall project design includes features and systems to earn a minimum certification of LEED Gold.

 
“EwingCole was instrumental in helping us achieve a truly holistic and strategic vision for our site. Under the leadership of Howard Skoke, the team was completely on target and was able to incorporate virtually all of our objectives into the capital plan. When others look back at our efforts 20 years from now, they will say ‘we got it right’.”

Technology & Engineering Development Facility (TEDF)
Newport News, VA

This $51M project includes the design of a new 70,000 SF building, the renovation of the 88,900 SF existing Test Lab Building 58, and a 30,000 SF addition to Building 58.  EwingCole began by performing a facility conditions assessment.  This assessment was followed by organized collaborative, interactive workshops to understand work flow.  The facility was designed to optimize and standardize the process flow of people, products, waste, supplies, and information through the facility.  Jefferson Lab achieved LEED Gold certification by using a ground source hybrid geothermal well field, dedicated outdoor air energy recovery units, solar heating of domestic hot water, and demand control ventilation.

 
“In all my years of reviewing National Lab Projects, I have never seen a project that so transformed a site and operations as the JLab TEDF project and congratulations to EwingCole for proposing the concept and JLab for accepting it.”
