Challenge:

Create research and breeding vivarium from space deemed unsuitable. Accommodate multiple species, applications, and health statuses.

Solution:

Construct positive and negative bioBUBBLE enclosures to provide environmental separation between housing groups, procedural, and surgical spaces.

Results:

Ultra-clean housing for multiple species in the same hard room. Designated biocontainment area within the main vivarium.
35% savings as compared to hard-walled renovation costs.
