New District Buildings
Design West is working with the Salt Lake City Mosquito Abatement District to design a state of the art facility that will allow them to better fulfill their duties of mosquito abatement while becoming a regional resource to other abatement districts.
The new office building will house the administrative functions of the facility as well as the new Level 2 Biosafety Testing Laboratory. Included in the administrative building will be 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 addition to the administrative building is the integration of a Level 2 Biosafety Laboratory which can easily be upgraded to a Level 3 lab if needed. The laboratory will be comprised of several individual spaces including a preparation room, extraction room and the testing (PCR) room. It will be located near the Colony Rearing room and have its own exterior entrance allowing samples to be dropped off in a location away from the main public entrance. 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.
