Integrated Design Solutions

  • GG Brown University of Michigan


The 62,880-square-foot $46-million addition to the G.G. Brown Laboratories will enable researchers to study the forces at work at the smallest scales and to advance nanotechnologies in energy, manufacturing, healthcare and biotechnology.  The new facility will provide research laboratories requiring low vibration and electromagnetic interference, as well as core laboratory spaces to be shared with occupants of the existing GG Brown building to promote interdisciplinary engineering research.

Novus’ consultation through design included:

  •  Fume Hood Dispersion and Exhaust Re-entrainment modelling
  • Assessment of exterior noise through modelling and measurement for compliance with the University of Michigan Noise Guidelines
