Funded by the DOE, the PULSE laboratories are part of the SLAC Central Laboratory in Building 40, built out in several phases to support various research programs
The scope included renovation of the first and second floors of the 2-story south wing including offices, laser laboratories, and molecular biology and biochemistry laboratories
Work consisted of ADA upgrades, optimizing energy performance by replacing lighting and controls, new HVAC controls, minimizing air and water discharges in the labs, installing Energy Star equipment, installing water conserving plumbing fixtures, hazmat abatement (asbestos) and use of Green Seal materials such as non-VOC adhesives and paint and green cleaning supplies.
“We are looking forward to the new scientific opportunities that are now enabled with our beautiful, state-of-the-art lab facilities.” David Reis, PULSE Lab Deputy Director.
“The design of this space to support our future is a truly wonderful thing,” Persis Drell, SLAC Director.
