AEM Completes Office-to-Lab Conversion

Westborough, MA – American Energy Management (AEM) recently completed the conversion of 63,000sf of lab and office space within a 500,000sf Class A office building. It will house administration offices and lab space for a medical device manufacturing company, and it is the first of multiple planned lab conversions within this building, which has traditionally consisted of conventional office space.

Major challenges included the incorporation of dedicated outside air handling systems to provide precise temperature and pressure controls within the clean, lab space. AEM provided state-of-the-art, BACnet IP based controls for the new offices, tied to the building’s house HVAC systems, as well as new BACnet IP controls for the dedicated outdoor air systems. The new controls allow system operators to monitor and track critical environmental data from anywhere via traditional browsers, tablets, and phones.
