Project Highlights

This project featured cleanrooms and imaging which required extensive electromagnetic interference (EMI) mitigation considerations that needed the use of GRC (overhead) and PVC Coated GRC (underground) conduits for feeders and branch circuits throughout the basement.

The cleanroom construction also proved to be an extremely difficult project beginning with soil testing to determine the best location to insulate the room from vibrations from the nearby Metro Expo Line light rail. There was a considerable amount of work done to protect the lab which included installing a 3-foot concrete slab for the building’s base, a dedicated duct system which if spread out would span 6 miles if laid from end to end, and using the utmost scrutiny following cleanroom protocol.

In addition, the project included a Toxic Gas Monitoring System, VESDA smoke detection system, and modified fire alarm sequence of operations that allowed area-specific mechanical shutdowns in lieu of a global shutdown sequence.
