NCDPW Forensic Evidence Laboratory

East Meadow, NY

Show Project Details

The laboratories in the Forensic Evidence Department have specific requirements for certification by NY State and Federal agencies. These requirements include specific square foot requirements per person, separation of workspace from lab space, etc. Inspections are performed every five years and are accredited through the American Society of Crime Lab Directors (ASCLD). The accreditation process is part of the laboratory’s quality assurance program, which includes proficiency testing, continuing education and other programs to help the laboratory give better overall service to the criminal justice system.

The required program space for Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) Forensics Lab is approximately 36,300 square feet including the Forensic Lab (20,900 sf.) and the noted parking. Cameron Engineering provided new M/E/P/F services. New HVAC rooftop equipment and associated ductwork, new exhaust systems and associated ductwork, new electrical distribution, emergency generator, new plumbing systems, fire sprinkler protection and fire alarm system was provided to serve the Forensic Labs. Primary utilities such as water, natural gas, electric, sanitary and storm water was provided from the existing base building services. MEPF design included providing the mechanical and electrical systems for the special exhaust systems, lab gases, and plumbing including process/acid wastes, fire protection, and refrigeration.

In addition, IT infrastructure design including back bone cable and network cable to desktop was provided, including Structural design for renovations to the existing base building structural system.

Forest Laboratories

Hauppauge, NY

Show Project Details

The Forest Labs building is a 100,000 SF Pharmaceutical Development Center. The project consisted of central boiler plant upgrades comprised of the removal of a boiler feed tank and installation of a steam condensate surge tank and 0.005 mg/cl deaerator. The work also included temporary boilers and an installation sequence to maintain building operation. An analysis of Laboratory Hot Water (140°F) production, distribution and usage was provided as well. New steam-fired domestic hot water generators were provided along with corrective piping to restore flow and temperature problems.

Gold Coast IVF

Woodbury, NY

Show Project Details

The Project consists of designing a new In Vitro Fertilization Doctors office. The project is approximately 7,500 square feet. The space includes an embryology lab, andro/endo lab, exam rooms, nurse’s station, procedure rooms, medical gas storage, offices, conference rooms, recovery room, egg storage, etc.

The entire tenant space was renovated. New HVAC systems, procedure room filtration systems, laminar flow diffusers, electrical, generator, fire alarm and plumbing systems were designed. A specialized HVAC air filtration unit was designed for the Embryology Lab and the Egg Storage area. The design emphasized specific space pressure relationships to keep procedure rooms, labs and egg storage areas under a positive space pressure to keep these areas cleaner and reduce contamination.
