This project consists of a nine-story, 400,000 square foot structure. The participation of Gaston Electrical includes full installation of the core and shell electrical, and telephone/data, fire alarm and security systems. The project also involves a complete build-out of over 300,000 square feet of life science laboratories, as well as installation of a 4,000-amp main electrical service, a two-megawatt generator and a full-life safety power distribution system.

Gaston Electrical also provided power for over 65,000 square feet of space dedicated to mechanical and laboratory equipment. Other facets of the project include a 38,500-square foot vivarium, which required wiring for animal watering and bedding systems, and a 7,500-square foot zebra fish aquatics laboratory. Additionally, Gaston Electrical is handling the design-build of a facility-wide state-of-the-art lighting control and dimming system.

To ensure success of the project from start to finish, Gaston Electrical is employing advanced three-dimensional building modeling software to coordinate all electrical work throughout the facility.
