Carmon Construction, Inc. was the prime contractor for the construction of laboratory building 109. Building 109 is a 27,325 square foot testing laboratory for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Chamblee, GA. This project included the construction of the laboratory building, as well as additional parking lot and landscaping. Building was constructed on spread footings with cast-in-place foundation walls and concrete floors. Approximately one third of the facility is constructed with laboratories rated at BSL 2E and 3.
Building 109 consists of a structural steel structure with exterior CMU walls with brick veneer. The exterior entry and lobby of the building consists of aluminum composite panels. The front facade of the building has aluminum sun shading devices. The entryway of the laboratory is decorative flat seam metal roof with a clerestory raised above the lower roof with aluminum composite panels for the soffit. This facility had unique requirements for plumbing, electrical, and HVAC to accommodate laboratory case work, Bio-med exhaust fan hoods, walk in coolers, freezer, and sterilizers.
A new asphalt parking lot was added along with river rock hardscape around the perimeter of the building with Bermuda sod and exterior plants. At the rear of the building a dock leveler was installed for loading and unloading laboratory equipment.
