NORWALK, Conn. - EMCOR Group Inc., a leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure, and facilities services, announced that its subsidiary, Trautman & Shreve Inc., has been awarded a contract for the installation of all the mechanical systems at the new Denver Police Crime Laboratory.

The Denver Police Crime Lab is a state-of-the-art, 60,000-square-foot building that will replace an existing facility; included will be an underground connection to the existing police building and three levels of laboratory and office space. This leading-edge laboratory requires highly sophisticated systems with requirements ranging from high-efficiency particulate air filters for the firing range and unique humidity controls, to special exhaust systems and special lab gas piping. Trautman & Shreve’s scope of work will include the installation of all heating and cooling, plumbing, specialty gases, chilled and heating water systems, and indoor air handling units.

The lab will be constructed with the goal of achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The building design has addressed energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, and improved indoor air quality.

“It’s exciting to be part of the team creating the unique and cutting-edge Denver Police Crime Lab, which is important to this community,” said Jim Durant, president and CEO of Trautman & Shreve. “Trautman & Shreve is unique in its abilities to perform the exacting standards required in the creation of such a facility, the expertise necessary to complete such a large scale building project, as well as the skills needed to support the goal of LEED certification.”
