Project Overview

GoE provided initial outfitting services for the LEED Silver certified U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) Replacement Facility, located at Ft. Detrick, Maryland.

As the largest, most complex biocontainment facility ever designed, USAMRIID encompassed the planning for the relocation of over 1,100 personnel from nine buildings, BSL2-4 biomedical research material, reuse equipment, and digital archiving biomedical research materials and reports into the National Archives. The newly constructed facility included administrative spaces, headquarters offices, and multiple laboratories and vivariums, needing planning and outfitting of specialized equipment, relocation of materials and equipment requiring security, and integration of medical equipment into the facility’s comprehensive commissioning plan.

The multi-phased project included initial outfitting of newly constructed spaces, with corresponding transition planning to support relocation. GoE’s scope of work includes:

  • Equipment Planning & Installation
  • Transition Planning & CONOPs
  • Key Control
  • Logistics Management & Planning
  • Move Supervision
  • Disposal & DRMO Operations


The GoE team also provided support ranging from developing a BSL2-4 Clinical Operations Plan and Day in the Life scenarios to BMET activities and warehouse management.
