Full environmental controls and supporting documentation for achieving lab
efficiency, safety and compliance now turnkey solution
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Companies in all sectors of industry, government and academia incorporating laboratory operations into their enterprise now have access to a single source solution for achieving total environmental control, energy efficiency and compliance from Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. By bundling environmental monitoring, control and documentation services in a turnkey package, Siemens offers lab operators a simplified, cost-effective and accurate means to participate in the Laboratories for the 21st Century (Labs21(R)) movement, co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Due to the often intense, specialized ambient conditions required to accomplish the processes and procedures typically performed in a life science or high-tech lab, far more energy and water per square foot are consumed than in most commercial buildings. According to Life Science Solutions Director Diane Feliciano-Welpe, "Siemens Building Technologies is offering an experienced team of professionals in the HVAC, power generation, lighting, water processing and related building environmental disciplines to formulate and execute a comprehensive plan of evaluation, renovation and documentation specifically for laboratories. This strategy is aimed at helping lab operators cost-effectively comply with more stringent operating and safety requirements, as well as maintain an overall improved energy conservation record."
Siemens approach involves the implementation of a comprehensive life cycle management approach for lab operations, based on various international standards and prevailing practices within specific industries-including pharmaceutical, biotech, semiconductor, primary metals and chemical processing. The service is also scalable; the program's modules can be scaled down to suit small, independent test labs or scaled up to thoroughly cover major corporate research facilities with equal effectiveness. Siemens tailors the program to suit virtually any industry's compliance requirements.
By containing energy costs while still maintaining a safe environment, enhancing system reliability and providing the documentation required for ongoing compliance, Siemens enables lab operators to more quickly bring their entire environmental performance model into a manageable state-of-control and remain securely in that mode going forward. Valuable also is the fact that the program proactively guides lab owners and users training to ensure this status is maintained over the long-run. When the long-term cost efficiency of energy savings are coupled with improvements to the facilities' compliance activities, a range of economies result and operational and financial performance is optimized.
As a leading provider of energy and environmental solutions, building controls, fire safety and security systems solutions, Siemens Building Technologies, Inc., makes buildings comfortable, safe, secure and less costly to operate. With U.S. headquarters in Buffalo Grove, Ill., Siemens Building Technologies employs 7,200 people and provides a full range of services and solutions from more than 100 locations coast-to-coast. Worldwide, the company has 28,000 employees and operates from more than 500 locations in 51 countries.
