Their challenge

When the university decided to conduct a renovation of the HVAC systems servicing an Anatomy Laboratory in their cutting-edge Veterinary Teaching Hospital facility on the Athens campus, they requested that Salas O’Brien provide mechanical engineering design services to support the transition.

Our solution

The HVAC system originally served the whole building, but this project restructured the system so that it would serve only the Anatomy Laboratory. The design added two exhaust fans which turn on and remove formaldehyde and phenol fumes from the lab area when fume levels become too high for the space.
