Research, Diagnostic & Testing Laboratory Design-Build Construction
Laboratories are the engine of research, development and quality control for today’s manufacturers, healthcare facilities, food production companies and institutions of higher learning.
Carl A. Nelson & Company brings decades of innovative design and construction experience in medical diagnostic, biomedical testing and laboratories for research and testing in markets including human foods, pet foods, food ingredients, chemical manufacturing, seed genetics, industrial chemical testing and other laboratory applications.
To provide the high level of service that our clients need and demand, we research all requirements of each lab's specialized equipment and the how it relates to the building’s systems. This allows us to work with the design team to customize the HVAC, electrical and building controls for proper operation of the lab equipment.
Due to the nature of laboratory activities, there are many regulation and code challenges during the design and construction of the project. Carl A. Nelson & Company provides code analysis during the design to ensure compliance with local, state and national codes and will work with the client to manage regulatory compliance.
Our professional staff maintains the privacy of our clients and manages many projects with confidentiality agreements. With our experience on laboratory projects in design-build delivery and as a general contractor, your organization can place its trust and confidence in Carl A. Nelson & Company. We self-perform work on laboratory projects using our own skilled team of construction craftsmen to assure quality.
Our Laboratory Project Portfolio
As a laboratory builder for industry, hospitals and academia, we have constructed industrial process labs, quality control labs, industrial research and development labs, medical diagnostic labs and academic research labs.
