Project Description

Battelle Memorial Institute

Renovation of Laboratory Building

Description:

Sauer was contracted to provide HVAC, BAS system, and Lab Controls installation for this renovation of an existing lab building.  The project included the installation of new custom air handling units in the mechanical room of the building.  Sauer was instrumental in value engineering the systems during preconstruction.  The accepted alternates included:

  • Revised the AHU configuration and layout to reduce size and construction costs
  • Developed alternative piping interconnections to tunnels on campus, which eliminated over 2,000 lf of 18” piping
  • Developed materials and components alternates, which reduced cost
  • Provided an alternative controls system approach, which eliminated duplication of activities
  • Developed a BIM model for existing and new work in the lab area
