Burlington, MA – Fitzemeyer & Tocci, teamed with Northeastern University and Linea 5, Inc., recently to complete the design and construction services for the renovation of a 2,400sf Biopharmaceutical Analysis Training Lab (BATL) at Northeastern University’s Burlington Campus. The renovation included a new teaching lab space, classrooms, offices and general administrative areas to support the University’s nursing program.
Fitzemeyer & Tocci worked closely with the project team and local inspectors to design a building wide fire alarm system upgrade as well as HVAC and plumbing infrastructure within the building.
The fire alarm system was a key element in saving the university the cost of installing sprinklers throughout the entire building and contributed to the overall success of the project.
A new HVAC system, including a new variable air volume (VAV) rooftop air handling unit (AHU) and exhaust fan, was designed to serve the lab and the lab’s support spaces, with an additional rooftop unit serving the classrooms and office areas.
