Optimizing Facility Operations for the Plum Island Animal Disease Center


The Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) is a partnership between the Evironmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security that works to protect U.S. livestock from the introduction of foreign animal disease like foot-and-mouth disease or swine fever. The facility does research to improve prevention, detection, response, and recovery to diseases that can threaten livestock health, the economy, and food safety.

Our team helped design, build, repair, and continually improve historical buildings, drainage systems, HVAC, major fuel oil facilities, and roadways as well as equipment.
