The TEDF project modernized the existing testing lab, added clean rooms and provided additional space for the Superconducting Radio Frequency Institute of Jefferson Labs. The facility needed to remain operational during construction. Cornerstone’s work ensured a smooth incorporation of the new facilities to existing and improved the daily operations by lowering energy use. Commissioning challenges included the integration of the new systems with the existing systems without power disruption to the operational facility.
The expansive nature and specific requirements of the Jefferson Labs necessitated careful planning to integrate the TEDF project into the existing operations. Cornerstone’s work ensured a smooth incorporation of the new facilities to existing and improved the daily operations overall. In addition, Cornerstone helped to implement sustainable features that have lowered the energy impact of this large testing facility. Systems commissioned in support of LEED gold certification, include dedicated outdoor air energy recovery unit, demand control ventilation, and heating and cooling system that draws 80% from thermal units.
