Monsanto Research Facility
For this 15,000 square foot agricultural research facility, located in Othello, Washington, Blythe was selected as the design-build mechanical contractor.
The design features an extremely efficient variable flow refrigerant system which provides for cost effective zoning of the office area, a sophisticated fume exhaust system for multiple lab hoods in several labs, makeup air equipment and air distribution ductwork, pressurization controls and independent air handlers for each lab. In addition, Blythe installed a reverse osmosis water treatment system to serve the lab, refrigeration piping and gas piping systems, ventilation and air distribution for the office spaces, temperature controls, a refrigeration system for the large storage cooler and plumbing systems for this facility. The job was completed on schedule and within budget.
