Project: Fort Detrick Cancer Research Center
Location: Frederick, MD
Fort Detrick is home to various biomedical research and development organizations.
Mainstream manufactured a custom air handling unit to fit an extremely small footprint area in an existing mechanical room serving a cancer research center.
In order to do this, the return fans were installed on the top of the unit, creating a u-flow configuration, and the unit was furnished in modules designed to fit through a small outside air intake in the side of the building.
