- Variable volume laboratory airflow.
- Variable primary chilled water plant.
- Variable primary heating water plant.
- Water reduction restroom fixtures.
- Stainless steel lab exhaust systems.
- High Delta T/Low flow heating and cooling systems.
- Single pass air for lab spaces.
- Dual parallel sanitary waste streams for lab and non-lab systems.
- Dual primary BGE services with auto-transfer switchgear.
- Two 4000A 480V building services for feeding core/shell and tenant loads. All tenants separately sub-metered.
- High Efficient Lighting for energy reduction.
- Master planned design to accommodate growth of central mechanical/electrical plant systems for proposed tenant build-outs.
- Outdoor pad mounted switchgear and transformers.
- Outdoor 300 KW diesel generator.
