HWI Global Commences Class 10,000 Life Science Clean Room Project for Walter Reed Army Institute of Research

Proprietary Bio-Gard Modular Wall System, Bio-Safety Cabinets, Two Incubators, ISO 8 Centrifuge Clean Room to Be Installed

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - HWI Global, Inc., the Pittsburgh-based clean room design builder, (OTCBB: IVTW) reports commencing construction of a Class 10,000 Life Science clean room at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Silver Springs, MD, under the direction of the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

The project includes four separate clean room work zones within the designated space. An ISO 7 Clean Work Room will house two Bio-Safety Cabinets and two Incubators, as well as an ISO 8 Centrifuge Clean Room. HWI will install its proprietary Bio-Gard Modular Wall System; an aseptic, high-impact, Class 1/A bio-pharmaceutical wall system with heat-welded seams; and the complete air handling and control system.

Deric Haddad, CEO, HWI Global states, "This contract has been on hold since 2010 due to coordination and occupancy delays. It is the ideal project for our proprietary Bio-Gard Modular Wall System. Composed of upgraded uPVC, the Bio-Gard is an extremely aseptic high-impact, finished surface with heat-welded seams. Unlike the pristine walls in other systems that can't even hold up to low-impact interfacing with busy technicians, Bio-Gard is perfect for the prominent pharmaceutical facilities -- like Amgen, Wyeth, Merck, and others. The bio-pharma industry should take note of the innovative and resilient Bio-Gard system about to be placed in Walter Reed."

HWI Global was chosen for this project by FLAD Architects, and Affiliated Engineers, both life science specialists located in Gainesville FL. HWI Global has entered into a subcontract with Rockville, MD-based general contractor John J. Kirlin for the Walter Reed assignment.
