EMCOR Subsidiary Awarded Contract for University of Pittsburgh Project

NORWALK, Conn. — EMCOR Group Inc., a leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services, announced that its subsidiary EMCOR Services Scalise Industries has been awarded a contract for the installation of mechanical and fire protection systems in the Nuclear Physics Laboratory Building at the University of Pittsburgh.

EMCOR Services Scalise will be responsible for installing all the mechanical and fire protection systems within the 22,260-square-foot Nuclear Physics Laboratory Building located within the “Mid Campus District Early Renovations” section of the university. Encompassing three levels and a penthouse, which includes 13 new leading-edge physics laboratories for the Department of Physics and Astronomy, scope of work will include demolition of existing lab space, and construction and installation of a number of different sophisticated systems. These systems range from high-efficiency particulate air filters, unique humidity controls, special exhaust systems, and special lab gas piping, to all fire protection systems, including pre-action systems, and all connections necessary for a complete and functioning fire protection system. Scope of work will also include the installation of all heating and cooling, plumbing, specialty gases, chilled and heating water systems, and indoor air-handling units.

The project will be constructed with the goal of achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The building design addresses energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, and improved indoor air quality, all which will be executed in full or in part by EMCOR Services Scalise.

The project is being funded both by the University of Pittsburgh and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Across the HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection work being performed, it is estimated that approximately 54 specialty trade workers will be employed over a period of one year as a result of this project.

“We are pleased to again be working with the University of Pittsburgh and are thrilled to have been selected to perform the mechanical work for this important project within its ‘Mid Campus District Early Renovations’ section,” said Mark Scalise, president and CEO of EMCOR Services Scalise. “The scope of this work requires a breadth and depth of expertise that optimally leverages our extensive skills and experience.”
