Blythe was awarded the mechanical subcontract for this 125,000 sq. ft. multi-story facility. 

The project features natural ventilation throughout the office and common areas, steam heat exchangers for hydronic heating and potable hot water, two floors of biology laboratory space with a separate isolated HVAC system, a vivarium, and audiology lab space. 

The central plant located on the roof includes boilers, chillers, and extensive piping systems.  Blythe redesigned several mechanical systems to better accommodate space limitations and functional requirements.
