E Instruments' Model 7899 Gas Sniffer is a portable, rugged, leak detection tool suited for any HVAC professional. The detector is equipped with a highly sensitive tip to pinpoint small leaks of any combustible gases and hydrocarbons from piping and/or appliances.
Tornado dampers from Greenheck are double flanged channel frame style backdraft dampers designed to protect against tornadoes and rapid pressure changes. Installed in ductwork, or wall mounted, near the exterior of a building, these dampers allow for air movement (intake or exhaust) during normal weather conditions.
The Sherman Fairchild Building, originally completed in 1981, was renovated to house the Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department. Addressing a 50% increase in population density, the focus aimed to add space for tissue culture and support space as well as create shared department resources.
The Health Sciences Education Building is part of the inter-institutional campus for health science education and research, and supports the colleges of medicine, allied health, and biomedical informatics. The six-story facility consists of administration and faculty offices, lecture halls, learning studios, flexible classrooms, student and faculty services, a clinical skills and simulation suite, class laboratories, and more.
This facility was conceived, constructed, and commissioned in 22 months, creating a hybrid teaching/research facility model for Canada’s third largest university. Emulating “bay & chase” typology from production facilities, the laboratories remain fully interconnected with clear travel paths for exiting, but with serviced zones supporting one or two research teams.
The Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, Calif. is one of the largest buildings in the U.S. to use integrated project delivery principles and one of only two U.S. hospitals with day-lit operating rooms. The facility includes an 11-story patient tower and a two-story diagnostic and treatment wing, topped by a 1.5-acre green roof planted with native flora to mimic nearby hillsides.
