The U.S. Customs and Border Protection chose CDH Partner to design this analytical laboratory and office complex near the Port of Savannah in coastal Georgia.
CDH provided full professional services that included architectural, engineering and interior design for the project. The 38,100 square foot one-story facility contains 12 state-of-the-art laboratories including level 100 and 1000 clean rooms, a garage/warehouse, five analyst team offices with breakout areas and a conference room. The project design team incorporated sustainable design strategies that led to the facility being awarded a LEED Silver Certification. The laboratory also received the Award of Excellence in the Low Rise category at the Georgia Chapter ACI awards.
The Customs and Border Protection Agency opened the 25 million dollar laboratory as a replacement for a much smaller facility. Customs officials use this location to analyze imported merchandise ranging from raw chemical products to finished manufactured goods, such as clothing and steel products, as well as controlled substances and contraband imported in violation of U.S. laws.
