Impyrian recently completed a successful Contract to provide an upgraded HVAC system for the Sterile Processing area in the Building 10 Clinical Research Center at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.
The Sterile processing center in Building 10 provides sterilization and storage of the equipment used by the medical and lab professionals at NIH. This equipment must be stored under controlled temperature and humidity conditions making this area a critical HVAC operation. The existing system was unable to meet these requirements.
Impyrian installed a new air handling system, coils, new dual duct terminal boxes, new valves, sensors and controls to solve the humidity and temperature control issues in the space. This project presented challenges as the space needed to be cooled while the existing air handling unit was demolished and replaced. Physical access limitations meant the new air handling unit had to be assembled inside of the mechanical space. To maintain space conditions during construction, Impyrian provided temporary cooling for the sterile processing area while working 24/7 rotating shifts to complete the replacement in the shortest possible time frame.
