Cancer researchers need every tool available to help find a cure and that means specialized lighting and controls for their laboratory facilities.

When a new 21-story research center was being constructed in New York City, Turtle & Hughes Lighting department put together one of its most complex packages ever. It included custom-designed lab bench lighting fixtures that work in conjunction with a daylight harvesting system and a shade control system that prevents light pollution at night. This created a controlled environment to conduct research so scientists could achieve a better understanding of the disease and how to manage it.

Turtle & Hughes became a partner in coordinating efforts between the construction company, design team, manufacturer and installing contractors. During construction, the work site exhausted its storage space. Turtle & Hughes Logistics & Materials Management provided services that included receiving, warehousing and strategically re-delivering the entire lighting fixture package to the site on an as-needed basis so construction would stay on schedule.

Today, scientists at the center are conducting their work in state-of-the-art facilities and creating new milestones in cancer research.
