Thanks to our extensive healthcare industry experience, we were chosen for this design-build HVAC and building automation systems project.
The building is so unusual that all equipment had to be custom-manufactured, and we tailored our installation activities to eliminate disruptions to ongoing research. All systems we installed are redundant, and automated to engage in the event of a failure or malfunction.
We collaborated with Siemens Controls on this project. Our input into design, constructability, and budget control considerations helped facilitate on-time and on-budget project completion.
The client wanted to add a facility that would include research laboratories, classroom facilities, and biosafety level 3 laboratories. The result was the George and Cynthia Mitchell Basic Sciences Research Building (Mitchell Research Building). They needed flexible, user-friendly HVAC and building automation systems throughout the 16-story facility.
For this project, we provided pre-construction services, budget control, Building Information Modeling coordination, and after-construction facility maintenance. We also installed:
- More than 1,000,000 cubic feet per minute of ventilation
- Air and exhaust systems
- Miles of chilled water, steam, and hot water piping
- Almost 2,000,000 pounds of ductwork
The University of Texas Mitchell Research Building is a 16-story cancer research facility that includes laboratories, classrooms, and administration offices.
