Alameda County Vector Laboratories

Alameda, CA | Police/Public Works/Labs

Alameda County’s Environmental Health Vector Laboratories was in need of both a major renovation and expansion. Located on the 1st floor of the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency building, the tenant improvement project added new spaces for specialized laboratory functions such as a vertebrate lab, insecticide lab, lab rearing and cold storage, and the main vector lab. The open lab design increased efficiency in workflow and improved transparency within the lab. The scope of work also included replacement of all building systems within the lab and backup power from a new standby generator.
