2552 Channel Ave.

     Details:     A permit to build a new processing facility at Studsvik's Memphis plant on Presidents Island.

9190 Crestwyn Hills Drive

     Project Cost:     About $900,000

     Permit Date:     Applied October 2007

     Completion:     Late 2008

     Owner:     American Association for Laboratory Animal Science

     Architect:     Renaissance Group

     Contractor:     Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc.

     Details:     A building permit for an expansion of the headquarters of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science. AALAS' property is on the north side of Crestwyn Hills Drive south of Winchester Road and east of Forest Hill-Irene Road.
The organization plans to expand its office space, said AALAS executive director Ann Turner, who added an adjacent warehouse will not be expanded.
"We're basically doubling the size of the (office) building," Turner said. "We're just adding on because the organization has grown in staff size and programs. We're adding 6,000 square feet or something like that."
Turner said AALAS already has hired new staff and plans to hire two more next year. The organization has 32 employees and 13,000 members, including veterinarians and technicians who take care of animals in research labs. The group offers education and certification programs and publishes reference materials and professional journals.
