HWI Global to Begin Installing Proprietary Bio-Gard™ Germicidal Wall Lamination at West Virginia University Clean Room Laboratories

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2011) - HWI Global® (OTCBB: HWIC), the Pittsburgh-based clean room design builder, is scheduled to begin installation of its proprietary Bio-Gard™ Germicidal Wall lamination at West Virginia University's White Hall Clean Room Laboratories. HWI's construction project is an ongoing part of the University's Department of Physics Relocation plan.

Deric Haddad, CEO, HWI Global states: "This is a very specialized installation for a high-profile and progressive institution. A collection of clean room environments, the project includes a Class 100 Photolithography Lab, a Class 1000 Wet Process Lab, a Class 10,000 Dry Process Lab, and a large Class 100,000 Growth Area Lab. HWI will laminate the newly-constructed drywall with our seamless, heat-welded proprietary Bio-Gard™ creating a homogenous and aseptic finish easily sterilized to reduce the risk of microbial contamination."

Mr. Haddad continues, "We are extremely excited to get moving on this project. Scheduled for Q1 this year, design changes outside of our scope pushed it back to Q3 and Q4. This installation is expected to be an eye-opening showcase of our proprietary Bio-Gard™ product line in and around Morgantown, a technology-driven professional community."

HWI's® Bio-Gard™ was chosen for this project by IKM Architects, a distinguished architectural firm, and entered into a subcontract with Jendoco Construction, a notable general construction firm, both based in Pittsburgh.
