When the strategic corporate goals of our clients call for a fast-track design - we deliver. PAML wanted a quick turn-around for the renovation of an existing student lab and office area into a state-of-the-art bio analytic laboratory. Coffman's understanding of their equipment needs allowed the construction to be completed in less than two months. The project was successfully finished within the budget and time constraints presented by the Owner.

The laboratory included two new fume hoods and seven mass spectrometers with provisions for a third future fume hood. The equipment required an extremely stable temperature environment to function properly.  Structural analysis was performed for the existing floor structure and roof structure to determine their structural adequacy to support new mechanical equipment. The project was challenging in that the area had been remodeled once before and ceiling space was limited to less than 18 inches.
