SCOPE OF SERVICES
By completing this job on a "fast-track" schedule, Heritage's expert mechanical services team made a significant contribution to this highly advanced research center's ability to achieve its objectives. To ensure optimum tenant comfort and facility energy efficiency, the company put in variable-air-volume boxes complete with hot water heating coils, water-cooled air conditioning units, steam humidifiers, and other equipment. Piping systems for medium- and low-pressure steam, clean steam, secondary hot water, and secondary condenser water help meet the needs of the facility's pressure reducing valve stations, glass washers, sterilizers, tunnel and cage washers, and autoclave equipment. And for maximum occupant safety and health, Heritage installed dedicated exhaust systems for the fume hoods and bio-safety cabinets connected to multiple 33,000-cfm strobic fans located on the roof.
This building's core-and-shell design and construction won LEED® Silver certification.
Designed to increase productivity, inspire innovation, and foster a successful healthcare product pipeline, the Alexandria Center provides its tenants with numerous state-of-the-art resources and a superior infrastructure.
