Mott congratulates The Veterinary and Biomedical Research Building at Washington State University for receiving high honors in the 48th Annual Laboratory of the Year Awards competition sponsored by R&D Magazine and Laboratory Design Newsletter.

The awards recognize excellence in research laboratory design, planning and construction and receives entries from the best new and renovated laboratories. Completed in June 2013, the WSU building is a state-of-the-art research facility located on the Pullman campus. Construction began in 2010, and move-in was completed by fall 2013. The budget was just over $96 million. The facility provides 77,250 net square feet (approximately 128,000 gross square feet) located within the Research and Education Complex. The building provides properly equipped and environmentally controlled, state-of-the- art biomedical research and support space for the health science teaching and research programs. A vivarium is included to provide modern animal holding facilities for gene targeted and knockout animals, as well as to provide essential quarantine space.

Each lab space included several different Mott products based on the function of the lab. Mott provided Optima benches, steel casework, stainless steel casework, stainless steel custom work surfaces, plain sliced maple casework that are FSC certified with no added urea formaldehyde and Pro Series fume hoods.

The project was designed by SRG Partnership, Inc., of Seattle and Portland and constructed by Lydig Construction, of Spokane, Bellevue and Tri-Cities.
