Studying, protecting and improving the health of the creatures living in the Chesapeake Bay is the primary mission of this new laboratory. The Ammon/AECOM Design Joint Venture team provided A/E design services for a new 59,900-GSF research and education facility that conducts studies for shellfish and finfish aquaculture, submerged aquatic vegetation and water quality programs.
Laboratory space includes wet laboratories as well as quarantine facilities for studies of pathological organisms and genetically altered and exotic species. Space was provided for clean laboratories (free of environmental contaminants) for microbiology, submerged aquatic vegetation and restoration and water quality analysis. This project was delivered utilizing a Construction Management at Risk approach.
