Memorial Sloan-Kettering Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center, NEW YORK, N.Y.
An expert mechanical systems installation; optimum heating capability; energy savings; prefabricated ductwork for timely installation and a tailored fit; appropriately controlled conditions for maintaining reliable information technology operations; comfortable and productive office space.
To expand its office space by renovating the upper floors of an existing building.
SCOPE OF SERVICES
In this client facility, Heritage provided a complete mechanical systems installation for floors 4-6. The installation included approximately 100,000 lbs of ductwork and 190 variable air volume (VAV) boxes that distribute supply and exhaust air throughout the three floors. To heat this space, the facility uses re-heat coils in the VAV supply boxes, which are integrated into the building's secondary hot water loop. In each floor?s information technology closet, a dedicated packaged air-conditioning unit maintains the appropriate temperature.
To meet this project's fast-track requirements, Heritage drafted and coordinated this project using 3D BIM (building information modeling) software. This new technology minimizes field conflicts, reduces change orders, and shortens project delivery times.
Scientists at the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center collaborate with those at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital on interdisciplinary efforts that are critical for researchers working to better understand cancer and develop new, more effective ways to treat it.
