Project Description

USC ATRI Lab & Freezer Storage

Client: Nancy Ridge Technology Centers

Address: 6370 Nancy Ridge Dr., Ste. 112  San Diego, CA

ConAm Building Co. was contracted to construct a medical research laboratory with state-of-the-art freezer storage for USC’s Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute.  The space is divided in half to accommodate a freezer bank featuring fifty-two negative-eighty-degree Panasonic freezers, and several liquid nitrogen tanks.  This equipment required the construction of structural supports throughout.  The complimentary laboratory features twelve formal lab stations, incubator, two bio-safety cabinets, and an exhaust fume hood.  This space also included two computer room AC units and the reworking of all mechanical systems.  Just off-site, ConAm also provided a generator with new enclosure for emergency power.
