Scientific/Medical Research Lab
This project provided the engineering design for the first floor of a four story, mixed use office building. The design updated the existing laboratory and office area to eliminate negative pressure issues, increase lab safety and conserve energy.
The scope included the design of new variable air volume terminal units with electric reheat to serve each lab and new direct refrigerant (DX) 100% Outdoor Air Unit with electric heat to handle the calculated lab loads. Also included was the design of new 316 stainless steel exhaust duct from each lab and manifold ductwork and design of a point of use acid neutralization tank for plumbing waste for each lab fume hood.
