The four-story building features wet labs, research centers, a fabrication lab, offices and conference rooms. The building also features a cleanroom—a dust-free environment for testing products such as nanoscale chips and biomedical devices.

SBI provided all the lab equipment including metal casework with wood overlay fronts, island benches, fume hoods, autoclaves and glasswashers. A unique scheduling challenge occurred when, with five months left in the project, a change order altered the project to include the second half of the building. SBI was able to order and install twice the amount of equipment within the original timeline.
