The New York Genome opened its doors in September of 2013, motivated by the necessity to take strides in the advancement of biomedical research, and a better quality-of-life, New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg along with many others created programs of collaborative teams from various research Universities. To compliment this state-of-the-art facility and maintain LEED Silver® with certification of Core & Shell, TEC Systems utilizes extensive building automation systems through their long affiliation with Honeywell.
With four major labs requiring critical sensors that measure oxygen and other gas amounts in freezer rooms and data centers, Genome asked TEC to integrate all controls within its graphical interface for efficiency, and the maintenance of a sustainable workspace. Sustainable utilities like modular chillers and fan wall units, air handlers with VFD drives required energy data trending optimization to assure lab conditions met Genome’s unique requirements. Separate water systems linked to labs run clever features like chilled beams, and air-to-air heat exchangers, recovering warmth from released exhaust. Within the building, TEC monitors acid rooms that require critical atmosphere conditions and an exceptional water treatment system, clarified with UV light to achieve a pure environment through a reverse osmosis system. TEC Systems chose Honeywell Striker controllers, and American Auto-Matrix (AAM) to maintain proper airflow in over thirty lab stations. That’s the performance and sustainability expected for an institute at the forefront of biomedical research.
