MECHANICAL Laboratory Systems
A laboratory often presents the need for advanced HVAC systems, controls, and safety systems.  Laboratory exhaust hoods come in many different configurations and styles that necessitate flexibility on the HVAC design.  Predominantly, a variable volume hood exhaust system is used in order to conserve energy when conditioning the make up air for the space.  The controls required to make this system operate are critical in their speed of response and accuracy for safety to be maintained.  Another issue that must be considered is what type of exhaust equipment will be used to propel the fumes away from the building.
