This new 24,000 SF Quality Control and Quality Assurance Laboratory replaced an aging facility. the jdi group, Inc. provided full services on the project, from programming through project close out.
The new design unites what had been four separate labs into one large, open, flexible space. This allows testing to shift from one area to another regardless of the requirements of highly specialized equipment. The central lab was designed not only to the functional needs of the users, but to their comfort as well.
