Our experienced construction professionals are prepared to deliver a full range of services, from conceptual estimating and preconstruction through commissioning and validation, for a myriad of facility types including:

  • BSL-2, -3, and -4 biocontainment facilities
  • Research labs
  • Pilot plants

We also offer highly-skilled individuals that bring the specific expertise required to respond to the needs of bio-defense and homeland security initiatives with projects requiring biocontainment, biosecurity and high containment biotechnology facilities. We’re well-positioned to serve the needs of the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices and federal marketplaces.
