Vertical Market Experience
High-rise residential projects present unique engineering challenges with regard to varying occupant loads in overall system sizing, thermal expansion, and system pressures that require special consideration and advanced construction solutions. From LA Live in Los Angeles, to One Rincon and BOSA projects in San Francisco, to Lincoln Square in Washington State, ACCO has many high-rise residential projects and more than 50 years of experience in ensuring that all complexities are managed from beginning to end.
Commercial Office Campuses
Cisco, Yahoo!, Google, Apple. The technology sector has fed employment growth and led to the building and retrofit of many office campus projects with which ACCO has been involved. ACCO assists owners in developing the appropriate project approach – balancing cost, longevity, operability, and energy efficiency priorities.
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facilities
These projects require specific knowledge and understanding of industry requirements due to FDA oversight, and requirements to know and follow cGMP design and installation protocols. ACCO is knowledgeable in the requirements of HVAC and plumbing design for these facilities. We are able to provide both fast and reliable analysis and design to meet aggressive design/build, design/assist or plan/spec project schedules.
Similar to Pharmaceutical facilities, design of laboratories requires specific advanced design knowledge, and understanding of current laboratory regulations. Whether the design is for a standard chemistry or biology research laboratory or BSL-3 laboratory, ACCO has the experience to provide the appropriate level of design for a compliant and safe facility.
Patient and employee protection drives the applicable healthcare HVAC and plumbing design requirements. ACCO has been involved in many OSHPD 1 and 3 facilities in design/build, design/assist, and plan/spec roles. Intensive plan review and onsite inspection requirements present unique challenges which ACCO can navigate, assisting owners and general contractors in the smooth execution of a healthcare facility project.
Mission Critical Facilities
The boom in internet development and cloud computing drives abundant new and retrofit construction of data centers throughout the country. ACCO has been involved in the design and construction of cutting edge data centers from just a handful of racks up to large 30 MW campuses with energy usage levels below 1.2 PUE.
