National Institutes of Health – Renovation and Adaptive Reuse of Building 29A

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), nation’s medical research agency, is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and serves as the world’s largest source of funding for medical research.  Convergent Technologies’ scope of work for this project includes room acoustics, interior sound isolation, HVAC noise control design services for the renovation of Building 29A of NIH’s Building 29 Complex.  Building 29A was constructed in 1968 and includes five floors consisting of biomedical research laboratories, shared analytical laboratories, laboratory support and administrative space, and a research vivarium on the basement level.  The goal of this project is to bring Building 29A up to NIH design standards, while facilitating interaction between scientists and support staff to achieve flexibility, energy efficiency and a quality work environment.  Design began in November, 2012 and construction is expected to be complete in 2014.
