100ths and 1000ths of a centimeter tolerances

In collaboration with the Owner and Project Design Team we created an inviting, open, and efficient facility that provided the staff with comfortable, durable, predictable, and controllable environments. We engineered plumbing, process, and HVAC systems and controls that ensured that all manufacturing spaces would be maintained within the strict tolerances for temperature, relative humidity, and relative pressurization. The attention to all system details ensured that the precision machining and manufacturing equipment would operate in conditions required to maintain quality control of manufactured devices that had tolerances measured in 100ths and 1000ths of a centimeter.

Together we worked to achieve an optimal balance between system expense, system effectiveness, and project budget constraints through the application of highly efficient packaged roof-mounted HVAC units with modulating gas burners, digital scroll compressors for cooling capacity turndown, variable speed fans, and zone level variable air volume terminal units. Direct digital controls were provided for system control and facility environmental monitoring, control, and communication of operational status and alarms. All systems incorporate elements of flexibility and scalability to allow for the addition of new equipment or the incorporation of new technologies.
