SFA Architects is currently providing complete engineering and lab design services for an existing 8 story environmental research facility. Work includes phasing analysis, energy modeling, complete replacement of all air handling units, supply and return ductwork, laboratory exhaust and renovations of existing lab spaces over a multi-year schedule. The design increases the flexibility and redundancy of the system to minimize research downtime and allow a marked increase in energy efficiency. The types of projects include: alterations and modifications to the existing research facility, heating, ventilating and air conditioning system modifications, design of fire protection and detection systems; and, electrical distribution system studies, evaluations and modifications. As a result the facility will be a state-of-the-art, flexible and energy efficient building, providing the foundation for 21st century research. There will be a dramatic reduction in energy consumption and reduced maintenance resulting from the new systems, improvement in AWBERC environmental conditions and increased lab and fume hood utilization.
