NIH Porter Neuroscience Phase 2

Bethesda, MD

Old Dominion Firestopping constructed a perimeter fire containment system for curtainwall assemblies on the 306,476-square-foot laboratory facility. The project features an expanded basement-level vivarium, a new vertical vivarium stretching up through the second floor, imaging suites, vibration stable core areas, hot rooms, cold rooms, a freezer “farm” and administration offices. These spaces are distributed over five floors each of which has been designed to align with the existing five levels of the Phase 1 facility. Shared amenities include a cafeteria, a four-story atrium, conference and seminar spaces and public areas.

Completed in 2013, the project finished on time with zero injuries. Old Dominion Firestopping contracted with Trainor Glass, the curtainwall erectors, to perform the work. Whiting Turner was the general contractor.
