Jupiter, Florida

Florida Atlantic University needed a 41,000-SF research lab building to serveas the temporary home for Scripps Florida. As the third building in a master-planned quadrangle, the exterior elements and finishes tie in with the exisitng buildings.The facility was designed for a high throughput automation laboratory in a class 10,000 clean room environment; chemistry and biology labs; BSL2 and BSL3 laboratories; ABSL2 and ABSL3 vivarium; radioisotope room; chemical waste storage; and state-of-the-art core facilities labs.

Constructed utilizing tilt-wall panels in keeping with university standards allowed for speedy construction. The entire project, from design to finished construction, was completed in 13 months.

"I am happy to recommend the architectural firm of [LEO A DALY] for their design and overall supervision on the FAU/Scripps Joint Use Building. This project was done on a fast track basis with a limited budget and essentially two clients. I am looking forward to working with this group again soon and would recommend them without hesitation to prospective lab clients."
