What Our Customers Are Saying
This lab was built utilizing two shipping containers married together creating one environment. The complexity for this lab is that it was level 3 containment for small animals, as well as the fact that we were able to conceal all duct work, in a ceiling cavity while staying within the footprint of the shipping container. This lab was equipped with a Double Door Autoclave, BSC, Water Bath, PCR Hood, Centrifuge, Refrigerator, Ultra Low Freezer, C02 Incubators, all within 3 Lab Spaces. Read More

What Our Customers Are Saying
I would like to thank CERTEK for your efforts and cooperation with regard to the installation of the BL3 modular laboratory you fabricated for us. From a physical plant perspective not only were we impressed with the lab installation itself, but also, your efforts in resolving the problem conditions that arose. As you know, the problem with the steam generating unit proved to be a tricky one to trouble shoot; but with your efforts and input, the problem condition was resolved and corrected! It was most encouraging to experience this type of cooperation and resolve to ensure the unit functioned properly. Unfortunately, all too often once the sale is made it is difficult to get the assistance one needs when problems arise. This is not the case with CERTEK.
Frank Navetta, Physical Plant Division, Michigan State University
What Our Customers Are Saying
Overall, the lab has performed well through the winter and summer. We have made very good use of the facility and logged many hundreds of visits to the BSL-3 suite. It is enabling me to achieve my goals as a researcher. In summary, I am pretty happy with the lab.
Rob Abramovitch, PhD Assistant Professor, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
What Our Customers Are Saying
I am writing in the capacity of a very pleased scientist to commend CERTEK for a job well done in the BSL-3 and RDTE containment laboratory structure you fabricated for us. The building is well designed and constructed, and it has operated very well since installation. Government program inspectors also have remarked on the quality of the building. I appreciate the way that you worked with us to design this unit, installed it properly and brought it up to operation. I highly recommend your company to other scientist needing a high quality prefabricated laboratory.
Wayne H Griest, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
What Our Customers Are Saying
As a follow up from our phone conversation, I'd like to offer a retrospective view of MRI's modular BSL-3 project. As we near the first anniversary of operating in our modular BSL-3 laboratory, I (as well as several others in our group) have had some time to think about our overall satisfaction of our project. Since we are now settled into the lab, we can look back at why we made certain decisions and consider whether we would make the same decisions again. As you know, while the actual construction process proceeded fairly quickly, MRI spent a lot of time on this project, much of it before your organization became involved. Read More

What Our Customers Are Saying
CERTEK in general are consummate professionals and have provided us at SRI a beautiful end product. Tim, your lead on this project and your 'will do' attitude faced with adversity were 15 on a scale of 1-10. Again, THANKS!
Pete Phillips, Operations Assistant, SRI Biosciences

About Us

‘Manufacturing, Construction, and Maintenance History and Expertise’

CERTEK History and Expertise

The CERTEK international modular laboratory division was founded in 1996 with D.W. Evans Electric, Inc. (DWEE) as one of the five primary contributing partners and then in 2010, CERTEK was acquired as a division of DWEE. The world’s first modular laboratory was placed on top of a 5-story building for Louisiana State University in 1997. Since that time, CERTEK has manufactured, setup, and started dozens of laboratories throughout the world. Our clients range from the U.S. Army, the Pentagon, State Universities, private entities, and international government and university clients approved by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. CERTEK has high reviews from the CDC and have given presentations to NIH concerning manufacturing and the installation of modular laboratories. Our laboratory facilities have been used to research SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), Ebola, MERS, TB, Anthrax, and other select agents. Therefore, for safety purposes, maintenance is very important for continued and safe operations of these facilities.

CERTEK has been contracted to perform and/or manage the maintenance for several of these facilities throughout the world. Our expertise expands into all trades of General Construction, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing. We install and perform maintenance on other systems to include control systems, low voltage systems, door interlock systems, specialty filtering systems, telephone and data systems, water purification systems, waste water systems, decontamination systems, levelling systems, slide-out systems, gloveboxes, biological safety cabinets, and many other systems that you would find in laboratory and cleanroom environments.

CERTEK’s capabilities has also presented opportunities for our maintenance services to be used in existing pharmaceutical, biological research, and healthcare facilities. Some of our active clients are located in Research Triangle Park of Durham NC, Doha Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and in other places.

D.W. Evans Electric, Inc. History and Expertise

DWEE was founded in 1979 as an electrical construction contractor. Many opportunities presented themselves because company representatives were building relationships with our clientele which developed a strong trust. Therefore, some construction projects grew into maintenance opportunities. The company quickly grew into not only a construction contractor, but one of maintaining existing equipment and facilities. The demand for maintenance grew with the company constantly adding new clientele.

Electrical and telephone equipment maintenance increased with clientele like GTE (a telephone service provider), Verizon, and Frontier (a telephone service provider). Research Triangle Park (RTP) in Durham NC, which is the largest research park in America, offered many opportunities for construction and maintenance, and still does.

DWEE acquired a reputation in the healthcare industry due to Duke University Medical Center and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill being near the company. The demand for construction and maintenance grew in this area astronomically. We are still very strong in healthcare, especially in patient care environments. DWEE also has experience in the educational, institutional, governmental, military, manufacturing, retail, pharmaceutical, and research sectors.

Combined Expertise and Commitment

Starting with our principals, who have over 140 years of combined expertise, we continue to add experts in various fields to offer the best maintenance solutions. We take the worry out of making it work or how to maintain it. Our combined history has allowed us to use our manufacturing, construction, and maintenance experience from DWEE and CERTEK to develop a cost-effective CMMS application for maintenance that can fit any operations and maintenance facility need. We have created it to be user friendly with an appealing look. CERTEK has used this program for a few years to perform maintenance for our clients. It has been proven to be a valuable tool for any maintenance program.

We are a professional manufacturing company that’s a unique blend of relational commitment and the art of maintenance. A big part of our marketing strategy is not only to sell a service or a product, but to build relationships.

We recognize that every maintenance plan isn’t only about maintaining a building, it’s really about the people involved with bringing that building to life and maintaining that level of life. To us, that means relational dynamics are every bit as important as providing an application with a user-friendly interface. And that’s why we’re committed to developing a responsive and trusted partnership that understands the unique perspective and vision for our client’s maintenance needs. Allow our experience to work for you. May you maintain a great day!
