The mechanical HVAC system design includes lab air handling units (that can be fixed at 100% outside air or operate with return air when the lab functions will allow), lab exhaust fans, fume hoods, sound attenuators, a chilled water system and a hydronic hot water heating system. The new expansion also includes the design of a direct digital control building automation system (BAS) that controls and monitors all mechanical systems.

The electrical system design includes power distribution, a new 750KVA 480 – 120/208 dry type transformer, a new 600-amp 480-volt, 3 phase 4 wire distribution board, new emergency power system, lighting, fire alarm system, security systems and voice/data rough-ins. Since completed, the project has been a great success with a variety of tenant types. Much of the success is due to the flexibility in mechanical and electrical systems. The collaborative design such as resource sharing is one factor that makes the facility economically viable to small and large tenants alike.
