Torcon provided CM services for a lab addition to a Torcon-built biomedical research facility at the Rutgers campus in Newark. The expansion created one of 13 Regional Biocontainment Labs sponsored by the NIH and NIAD to respond to emerging public health threats.

This new facility provides 30,000 sq. ft. of lab and vivarium space, including more than 8,000 sq. ft. of ABSL-3 space; 2,500 sq. ft. of BSL-3 space; and 3,750 sq. ft. of BSL-2 space. Dedicated lab and building support are provided, along with staff offices, storage, and loading.
