Project Description

A leader in animal nutrition, Novus International develops health and dietary supplements for livestock, pets and people.  When it needed to replace acid digestion fume hoods and the associated ductwork in a busy lab at its headquarters, time was of the essence.

Working with ISC Contracting, the company chose to have the new equipment and infrastructure installed over a brief holiday shut-down of the lab’s operations.  Because the  window available for construction was short, ISC was required to work around — rather than to move — the sensitive, expensive equipment housed in the lab.  Safety was paramount throughout construction as well.

ISC completed the $120,000 project on budget and within schedule, enabling Novus researchers to hit to the ground running when they returned 14 days later.
