LJJ wins CL2 scheme at The Pirbright Institute
LJJ has been awarded the M&E design and installation contract for a new containment level 2 (CL2) facility at The Pirbright Institute, a national centre for preventing and containing viral diseases of farm animals and those that can spread from animals to humans. The facility is designed have a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
The project builds on LJJ’s experience of laboratory schemes and will include the design and installation of class A, B and C ductwork appropriate to the low-risk CL2 status.
The roof-top plant room will include extraction plant with heat recovery, chilled and gas boilers.
DALI lighting systems in the laboratory and office areas will include manual on and absence-detection off functionality.
Contracts manager Jason Burns, comments, ‘While the scheme involves a relatively low containment level classification, this remains a complex programme with some very specific requirements, both in terms of the CL2 facility itself and the infrastructure works to aid future development.’
