The Phase II BSL3 Lab work at the Mississippi Public Health Lab is scheduled for completion this month. This complex project included modifications to the existing HVAC systems, filtration and operation control systems, life safety electrical power, and the forensic testing of BSL3 room integrity which resulted in additional room pressure sealing upgrades. We also constructed this 81,000 sf four story facility which includes laboratory facilities that will study and hopefully help find cures for various diseases. The entire facility including mechanical and electrical systems are uniquely designed and built to meet the demanding needs for these specialized labs.
This project is an example of how White-Spunner ConstructionÂs commitment to implement safety, quality, and integrity in every project created a ÂWin-WinÂ. The Owner chose to engage our company again to work closely with them and the new design team. This Phase II was implemented to create specific solutions that will allow for confident operations within the BSL3 labs and support service areas.
A special ÂkudosÂ to the White-Spunner construction team that was assembled to complete these modifications. Our Phase II team also included a group of very talented engineers, subcontractors and vendors that worked closely with us to provide another excellent outcome for a site specific project and satisfaction to the Owner.
Yesterday, Airbus broke ground on its first U.S. airplane assembly plant at Brookley Aeroplex here in Mobile. Along with company executives, state leaders, local officials, and other Alabama residents, I was privileged to attend the ceremony. The $600 million factory is expected to employ 1,000 people once production of the Airbus A320 jet begins around 2015.
On behalf of everyone at White-Spunner Construction, welcome to the Port City, Airbus!
