HWI Global Near Completion of Class 10,000 Life Science Clean Room at Walter Reed Institute of Research

Company Scheduled for ISO Certification on September 26

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - HWI Global®, (OTCBB: HWIC), the Pittsburgh-based clean room design builder, reports the Company is completing the final stages 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 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The project includes four separate Clean Room work zones within the designated area, including an ISO 7 Clean Work Room to house two Bio-Safety Cabinets and two Incubators, and an ISO 8 Centrifuge Clean Room. HWI Global® has installed its proprietary Bio-Gard™ Modular Wall System, an aseptic, high-impact, Class 1/A bio-pharmaceutical wall system with heat-welded seams. The Company provided the complete design-build-clean room air handling and control system.

Deric Haddad, CEO, HWI Global® states, "Our goal is to complete the Walter Reed project before the end of the third quarter. We put a major effort into it and it looks like we have succeeded. This is an opportunity to showcase the latest variation of our Bio-Gard™ Modular Wall System -- an extremely aseptic, but high-impact, finished surface with heat-welded seams. We expect to demonstrate to many end users that our system has far greater performance features than the others around the industry. Its high-impact, finished surface provides the durability and longevity sorely needed in bio-pharma labs. We are delighted with our team's success and are set to balance and ISO certify on September 26."

HWI Global® was selected for this project by FLAD Architects, and Affiliated Engineers, both Life Science specialists from Gainesville, FL. HWI entered into a subcontract with John J. Kirlin, a Rockville, MD-based general contractor.
