William & Mary Integrated Science Center 4 (ISC 4)

Scope of Services
Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection (MEP/FP) Engineering
 

The Integrated Science Center is a set of interconnected buildings at William & Mary that houses its STEM programs. It has been updated and expanded in several phases over the past decade to provide flexible, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge learning and laboratory spaces. The fourth and final phase, ISC 4, is being built to house the mathematics, computer science, and kinesiology departments and the new design and engineering undergraduate program.

2RW is providing sustainable MEP/FP engineering for this project, which is currently in design. Final sustainable design approaches will be determined as the project progresses; however, some of the project’s early considerations include:

  • Managing daylight and heat gain along the southern and western facades and comfort and usability in the north courtyard.
  • Addressing high cooling demands.
  • Managing HVAC requirements for a wide variety of space types and occupancy profiles.
  • Developing a flexible MEP/FP infrastructure that can support future upgrades.
  • Devising strategies for the placement of mechanical equipment that serves vibration-sensitive labs.
  • Designing dedicated HVAC systems for IT rooms on each floor.
    Managing power requirements for the department of computer science’s computing center needs, including redundant emergency/UPS systems.
