In the basement of building LM on the Max Planck Campus in Martinsried a fish breeding station has been built. The fish department consists of two large fish rooms, a technical room for water treatment, as well as associated laboratories and a quarantine room. The fish room is operated with an air temperature of 26°C and a temperature constancy of ±1K. Due to the high relative humidity of up to 70% at 26°C, the risk of condensation and corrosion is very high. For this reason, the entire interior of the fish compartment was insulated with vapour-tight foam glass panels. The fish rooms received a new floor structure with epoxy resin coating, foam glass insulation as well as cement screed. The doors were renewed according to fire protection. The result is bright laboratories with the latest equipment and technology.
