CONF IDENTIAL CL IENT | COVID19 TESTING LAB (BSL2)
Type: Office, R&D
Major e-commerce client approached AT in Mid-April to aggressively install onsite virus testing labs. Parallel development of mobile modular labs and TI / brick and mortar labs for COVID19 testing. Satellite locations throughout the US are being established for quick testing turnaround following Federal CDC guidelines for virus testing labs which are BSL-2 biosafety level. Established laboratory operations and PCR processes to help control contamination. Develop a (1) line (1,000 samples), (2) line (7,500 samples) and (4) line (estimated 20,000 samples daily). Mechanical Team provided 15 ACH 100% exhaust with the DOAS and used cascade pressurization with the testing part of the lab being the most negative with pre-testing room second most negative, while pressurizing all adjoining spaces to eliminate cross contamination. IAQ Photocatalytic Virus Filters and final HEPAS on the supply air were also provided. Electrical Research and coordination with lab owner in development of lab tool matrix, In depth analysis of existing electrical service, metering of existing loads, in order to determine the best power source for new lab and its associated HVAC equipment. Also reviewed the backup power requirements and sizing UPS and generator requirements.
Plumbing provided required eye wash system and fixtures with auto faucets. Team worked closely with Owner, Contractor, Vendors & City Planning to achieve TCO for pilot lab in 14 days (design and construction).
