We have special expertise and experience delivering clean, ultraclean, and biocontainment (BSL-1 through BSL-4) environments with the highest level of staff and facility protection, strong emphasis on operational safety, blast hardening, and CBR protection.
We design our lab facilities to support R&D equipment technologies ranging from standard X-rays to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), SEMs, TEMs, and STEMs. Design criteria for this equipment include vibration and electromagnetic field sensitivities, and special utility requirements. Our equipment planning process ensures the flexibility needed to accommodate future changes in equipment technology and next-generation scientific discovery. These facilities support the most advanced research taking place in the world today, and attract and retain the most important scientists in their fields.
We provide leading edge capability in the design and construction of nanotechnology facilities for both university and commercial clients. Our experience includes facilities involved in some of the world's most advanced research in technologies such as nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS), nanoelectronics, nanosystems, and nanophotonics.
We've helped nanolithography researchers design new facilities, upgrade and expand existing research spaces, refine processes to further miniaturize integrated circuit features, and perform cost estimates for new nanotechnology facilities. We are skilled in the application of the specialized design considerations required for these facilities, including rigorous vibration and cleanliness criteria
Innovative research into microscale and nanoscale materials and devices is increasingly interdisciplinary, requiring crossover between research disciplines and departments not closely linked in the past. This integration is leading to more complex laboratory facilities in order to satisfy the needs of multiple users.
The overall key criteria for successfully designed R&D facilities include: technical requirements of instruments and their unique environments, which often are primary drivers for the functional design direction; ideological context of the university and the needs of researchers for spatial arrangements that support scientific creativity and collaboration; physical building context and its link to the existing campus planning; and building management systems including safety, security, efficiency, flexibility, and sustainability.
CH2M HILL understands the full cycle of delivering complex science and technology facilities. As a global leader in planning, design, and construction, we can provide the systems and facilities that are integral to emerging technologies research.
CH2M HILL designed the world's highest density data center at, providing availability, redundancy, and flexibility for future growth. We've managed the design and construction of high-density data centers and the core information technology servers, networks, and telecommunications infrastructure in advanced technology industries for 20 years. We've delivered more than three million square feet of mission critical space (data center, computer rooms, and telecom facilities) throughout the world.
