The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was in need of a Science and Ecosystem Technology Center to meet its regional needs. Keenan Development successfully delivered a state-ofthe- art, high-tech facility designed to expand to meet the EPA’s needs into the next century. At the same time, Keenan Development employed effective community relations with the residential neighborhood situated adjacent to the facility.

The facility was developed through the U.S. General Services Administration in Athens, Ga., which secures the buildings, products, services, technology and other workplace essentials federal agencies need. The $15 million facility covers approximately 62,000 gross square feet and 11 acres. Keenan Development principals own and provide long-term management of this design/build/finance development. HVAC and fume hood controls were innovatively customized to allow the tenant precise control over airflow experiments and research.
The facility uses chilled water, boilers, DDC controls and charcoal as well as acid neutralization filtration systems. Water deionization and well systems are in place to accommodate water purification needs. A central gas distribution system with "point of use" features allows for efficient maintenance and replacement of gas tanks and the flexibility to change types of gases within labs.

As is the case with all Keenan Development projects, the Environmental Protection Agency Research Laboratory Facility was completed on time and within budget.
