This project provided a new Positron Emissions Tomography – current Good Manufacturing Practices Laboratory (PET-cGMP) for the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). It consists of multiple “hot-cell units,” which are radioactive ovens lined with lead-bricks, inside multiple clean-room laboratories. A multi-floor cart system was installed to transport the radioactive materials through the inner workings of Building 10 to the laboratories and clinics that use them. Also built was a massive 16-floor exhaust system that spans from the 2nd and 3rd basement levels (where the hot cell laboratories are located) to the roof of the research hospital. This exhaust system requires three large air handling units.
