Halper Laboratory, City of Hope
Location: Duarte, California
Completed: February 2012
Architect: West Edge Architects

The Halper North Renovation project consists of tenant improvements for laboratory, support, and office spaces for the Beckman Research Institute at the City of Hope. The project took place in a partially occupied and operational research facility while allowing for a minimal level of disruption to ongoing operations for both and provided safety for both the building occupants and the construction team.
The project includes a new Tissue Culture laboratory, a large open laboratory with nine island benches and a Chemical Preparation and Bio-Chemical laboratory. The renovation required the replacement of the entire ceiling to fit current compliance codes as well as new light fixtures and a new HVAC distribution for the facility.
