FACILITIES MANAGEMENT PROJECT OBJECTIVES
To outsource facilities management for two of its key buildings.
BUILDING MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
To meet this client's objectives, Fluidics applied its broad facilities management expertise to two completely different types of buildings—corporate offices and an engineering/testing environment.
The corporate executive headquarters is a five-story 300,000-square-foot building. Its mechanical systems consist of three 300-ton chillers, two electric boilers and four main air handlers. There is also a 40,000-square-foot data center conditioned by 12 environmental control units and two mainframe chillers. In addition to maintaining and operating this equipment, Fluidics' four on-site engineers and one cabling/telephone system specialist provide office relocations and fit-ups.
The second facility in this contract is a single-story 180,000-square-foot engineering development and test center. It is heated and cooled by 12 direct expansion rooftop package units that use hot water supplied by a 200-horsepower boiler. In addition to maintaining the house systems, Fluidics' two building engineers and one maintenance mechanic service the client's new product development equipment. It includes 800-ton low-temperature chillers and 300,000-cubic-feet-per-minute high-velocity air handlers for aerodynamics testing, as well as hydraulic systems and shop equipment.
