An A+ for stringent floor vibration limits.

When the University of Waterloo Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC) was built, we were tasked with making sure the very stringent floor vibration limits were satisfied.
The building was to contain many laboratories and the requirement was 33 times more stringent than a typical building because of sensitive equipment. We used significantly upgraded design to the typical vibration isolators and were involved in the selection of the equipment parameters as well as in the vibration isolation system.
All requirements were met and the QNC building is one of the first buildings where there are many vibration sensitive labs within one building.
