Prior to our upgrade project, this building had undergone years of renovations with no specific focus on the mechanical infrastructure. Our upgrades provided new variable airflow supply and exhaust systems with exhaust redundancy and variable exhaust
rates for laboratory spaces, balanced to National Institute of Health standards. Modifications included new Strobic exhaust fans, Phoenix control valves, Aircuity, and new Climatecraft Access air handler units.
We completed the MEP modernizations within an occupied facility with multiple departments and ongoing laboratory testing. Because the building was occupied, we developed a room matrix which identified HVAC and exhaust risers servicing each room. The matrix detailed how our work impacted each of the 127 rooms daily so we could schedule shutdowns two to three weeks in advance. We proactively coordinated outages in accordance with the user's schedule, which helped maintain our project schedule.
