After completing the feasibility study for the potential fit out, AstraZeneca decided to move forward with the design of two ADC laboratory spaces on the 4th floor of their Gaithersburg location. For the fit-out, we incorporated the corridor equipment zone into the laboratory space, minimizing the potential of cross contamination of chemicals. Our design included a hazard zoning method to provide a safer environment for workers.

Within the main lab we designed fume hoods, insuring not to disrupt airflow with traffic and minimize the need to pass a hood to egress the lab. Due to the elevated level of highly toxic chemicals, the exhaust systems for the lab were designed to be isolated from the existing general lab exhaust system.
