The Hauptman Woodward Research Institute is at the forefront of medical innovation. This Cryo-EM center will provide a new instrument for the region in hopes to push discoveries and research to new levels.
FFAE worked with Hauptman Woodward to repurpose existing space to become the Cryo-EM center to house Cryo-EM microscopes which use electron beams to document 2d images of proteins. This center consists of spaces required to support the operators, sample preparation, sample storage, workspace, and the enclosures required for the microscopes and associated equipment. Each space is designed to accommodate different thermal characteristics.
FFAE was also tasked with designing an exterior enclosure to house the batteries necessary to support the Cryo-EM center. This rated enclosure is located within the parking area under the building, but sited as to not reduce circulation or parking. The materials and geometry were designed to blend with the existing.
