DVS provided security consulting and engineering services for the new 475,000sf research building for the Weill Cornell Medical College, part of Weill Cornell University in New York, NY.  The facility includes three levels of BSL-3 laboratories and a complex vivarium multi-suite floor.  As part of the project, DVS designed a fully integrated access control, with lighting for cage and corridor dimming, door interlocks on all adjacent doors, and biometric access systems on high security areas.  Detailed analysis of lab and researchers pathways for lab access, as well as the many delivery scenarios, were also analyzed and incorporated into the overall security design.
