Design West Architects designed a new state-of-the-art Headquarters Facility for the Salt Lake Mosquito Abatement District that allows them to better fulfill their duties while becoming a regional resource to other abatement districts.
The new office building houses the administrative functions of the facility as well as the new Level 2 Biosafety Testing Laboratory. Included in the administrative building is a large conference / training room, office space for full time employees, kitchen and break area, employee restrooms with locker rooms and showers, and a large laundry room. A significant area of the administrative building is the Level 2 Biosafety Laboratory which can easily be upgraded to a Level 3 lab, if needed.
Additional buildings designed for the new headquarters include a bunk house, a large vehicle storage / maintenance building, chemical storage building with raised loading dock and dedicated pesticide testing building.

The article focuses on the research and accreditation process that came about to ensure the millwork throughout the project is the highest standard of quality.
