This project was a complete replacement of the HVAC systems within the facility’s Quality Assurance Laboratory building. This unique project required the demolition and installation of all components of these systems within a 36,000 sqft active laboratory which is in operation 24 hours per day.
The scope of work included the removal and replacement of all components of the existing HVAC systems along with major electrical upgrades, and structural steel erection. This included HVAC equipment (chiller, chill water pumps, condensate pumps, cooling tower vertical pump, condensing units, air handlers, split system unit, VAVs, VFDs, and exhaust fans), ductwork, mechanical louvers, fire dampers, fire alarm/suppression system, concrete equipment foundations, HVAC control systems, condensate and refrigerant piping, steam piping and headers, chill water piping, cooling tower modifications, membrane roof replacement, asbestos abatement, upgrades to existing MCC panel, the addition of new electrical switchgear, electrical panels, electrical disconnects, building lighting, erection of structural steel conduit bridge, and interior finishes.
Of the 71,000-man-hours that were worked on this project over its duration, 72% were self-performed by Moore Industries.
