Britannia Modular Labs, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
The project’s MEP Systems were delivered on a Design/Build basis. The project and State-of-the-Art Lab suites provide high performing Mechanical Systems and are located in the heart of South San Francisco the epicenter of the Bay area’s life sciences community, constructed within budget, and on schedule.
Marelich worked collaboratively with the owner, Architect, general contractor, and all other team members, to provide optimized solutions for the project.
The team addressed logistical challenges early on using Building Information Modelling (BIM). The model then became an invaluable tool, used for construction fabrication and also utilized to communicate construction sequencing and methods for all stakeholders involved.
SCOPE OF WORK
Designed and constructed the Mechanical Systems serving the separate project areas. The projects Generation Plant includes a boiler and chiller central plant, with variable flow DX package units for distribution to the office spaces; and constant volume 100% outside air handling units for the laboratory areas. The design and installed systems include built-in redundancy at the generation plant to accommodate future expansions. The HVAC installations also include a fully commissioned direct digital control (DDC) system for Building Management, controls and monitoring of the systems operations, while allowing remote web access capabilities.
HCP Life Science States owner and developer of the Britannia Modular Labs is the largest and most experienced entity in the South San Francisco area. The project is currently seeking LEED certification, and has a contiguous 60,000-SF section within the renovated space for future tenant expansion and Phase II of the Britannia Modular Labs project.
