Emcor Services Scalise Receives Contract for Fire Protection and Mechanical System Installation at Laboratory Building

Emcor Group, a company providing electrical and mechanical construction as well as energy facilities and infrastructure for a wide range of businesses declared that its subsidiary EMCOR Services Scalise Industries has been granted a contract to provide all fire protection and mechanical systems to the University of Pittsburgh-located Nuclear Physics Laboratory Facility in Pennsylvania.

The Nuclear Physics Laboratory facility measures 22,260 sq.ft and is situated inside the “Mid Campus District Early Renovations” area of the University of Pittsburgh. The laboratory has three floors and a Penthouse housing 13 modern advanced technology physics laboratories for the Astronomy and Physics department of the University. Emcor Services Scalise has been entrusted with the task of demolishing the present lab space and building and installing several advanced systems. These systems include unique exhaust systems, special humidity controls, particulate air filters of improved efficiency, improved lab gas piping to all fire security systems such as preaction systems, and all the connections required to develop a full-fledged and perfectly-operating fire protection system. The work involved will also comprise installing heating and chilled water systems, plumbing, indoor air-handling units, specialty gases and all cooling and heating devices.

The objective of the project is to achieve the LEED certified status for the building by using sustainable building methods accepted by the U.S Green Building Council. The building design focuses on water efficiency, energy savings, enhanced indoor air quality and decreased CO2 emissions, which will be done either partially or completely by EMCOR Services Scalise.

The funding for the project is being provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Pittsburgh as a section of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
