MD Anderson Cancer Center - Life Science Plaza
Location: Houston, TX
Architect: Philo Wilke
A.T. Villa Product: Ergolab & Basic
A.T. Villa's Ergolab product line was selected to be used at The Life Science Plaza - a 100,000 sf laboratory, multi-story, build out project for University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center - was highly unique in its demand to be designed and constructed within 12 months; it utilized hazardous occupancy chemical storage rooms for the laboratories located on high-rise floors; and the project had to be permitted by the city, an unfamiliar process for the State institution.
Life Science Plaza was one of the fastest installs we have ever seen in a project of this size. The Ergolab benches were completly pre-built off site then rolled into place, leveled and wiped down. On one single day we installed 150 of the 650 benches on the project.
Empower Pharmacy Labs
A.T. Villa's Ergolab product line was selected for Empower Pharmacy and their new contract facility in Houston, TX. These two video links is a very well created overview of their amazing facilty and shows some quick glances at the Ergolab benches in the facility.
