Description: The Clinical Center Animal Facility (CCAF) was built in 1976 and the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is nearing the end of its useful life. The HVAC system also lacks redundancy for equipment failure or scheduled maintenance outages and cannot ensure optimal animal health and welfare and research results. The CCAF has been challenged in maintaining proper temperatures and would benefit from updated central environmental monitoring and alarming of the animal environment to ensure rapid response to problems.
The planning of this project is anticipated to include a new HVAC system designed to control and maintain the proper temperature, differential pressure, humidity and outdoor air exchange rate at the room level. The upgrades will add redundancies to ensure continuous operation during equipment failure and scheduled maintenance to ensure optimal animal health and welfare and research results.
The Clinical Center is located on Service Road in the South Academic District.
