Zebra Fish Tank Lab
Build out of shell space for new faculty recruit in the Anderson Biological Laboratories Building. The researcher’s work is in evolutionary biology studying patterns of evolution using computation and light microscopy.
The project includes a Fish Room with aquariums and camera set up, a Beetle Room with a custom fabricated housing, a Scanner Room with a CT Scanner and dissection area and Lab Equipment Room. To enable future projects in the shell space without interruptions to the Evan’s Lab, the design team included the extension of MEP services into the adjacent spaces.
Rice University – Optics Lab
Build out of shell space for new faculty recruit in Space Science and Technology Building. The interdisciplinary research group is focused on the development and application of 3D single-molecule tracking and super-resolution imaging throughout mammalian cells. The goal of this research is to improve understanding of cellular function and pathogenesis to answer biophysical and biomedical questions related to aging and cancer.
The project includes an Optics lab with three cubicles requiring individual control, a cell culture lab and supporting wet lab space. The strict humidity control required an independent air handling system to be added to the existing systems.
