Design-assist of a new 347,064 gsf., double winged building, with each wing having 6-stories. The building is to be added to a campus of buildings. This is primarily a research and development facility with open and private office spaces, electronic laboratory spaces, conference rooms, privacy rooms, small meeting rooms, a multi-use room with appropriate restrooms on each floor. HVAC systems included a campus central plant, large central air conditioning and heating systems, natural venilation system, plumbing for cafeteria and kitchen areas. A series of bridges have been provided as a pedestrian convenience to provide greater working connectivity for the employees from the north wing to the south wing of this large building.

Start / Completion Date: November 2007 / June 2009
Sony Electronics Corporate Headquarters project was the new construction of an 11-story, 450, 000 sq. ft. office facility, 6-story adjacent parking structure and surrounding site amenities. The $150 million design-build project accommodates 2, 500 full-time employees. This project was built to achieve LEED silver status, incorporating a variety of energy and resource-saving measures. The building’s heating, air-conditioning and lighting is controlled by motion sensors placed in “micro-zones” that shut down systems when individual zones are unoccupied. In an effort to save water while maintaining aesthetics, the condensation from the air handling equipment is accumulated and utilized as makeup water for a courtyard water feature and the cooling towers. Photovoltaic panels are placed on the roof of the parking structure, allowing the facility to generate a portion of its own power. The “aggressive schedule” was the project’s most challenging element, basically doing $150 million worth of work in 15 months. Other amenities incorporated in Sony Electronics’ new corporate building include a 10, 000 sq. ft. fitness facility perched atop the nearby parking structure, a coffee bar located at the entrance of a pedestrian bridge on the third floor and a penthouse restaurant and dining area. Pacific Rim provided design-build mechanical and plumbing systems on this project.
Start / Completion Date: September 2010 / April 2012 The scope included: Process and environmental chilled water/heating hot waterPiping systems include copper, carbon steel, stainless steel and PVC. Our controls team installed open architecture controls on both process and environmental systems.
The centerpiece is a 90-ton cyclotron, a machine that accelerates protons to 70% of the speed of light creating a beam that can reach tumors that are up to 14 inches deep.
The most unique aspect of this project is that through super-cooling of the cyclotron core (to about 3° Kelvin) the power draw is reduced to a fraction of that of similar facilities. The beam can also be shaped in three dimensions to avoid harming surrounding healthy tissues, targeting tumors with unprecedented accuracy
Illumina’s new World Headquarters was an entire campus project consisting of major renovation of three buildings and a new 4-story tower. The 450,000 sq. ft., design-assist project included labs, an extensive Solvent Delivery System, research spaces, administrative spaces, conference rooms, seminar and board room facilities and an upgrade to an existing central plant to accommodate the expansion.
The scope included HVAC (including air handling units), plumbing, complete hot water Hydronic System, and high purity process piping system for a chemical solvent delivery system for their heart of the research. Solvent delivery system included approximately 2,700 linear-feet of orbitally welded clean for oxygen stainless steel piping, 4,000 gallon stainless steel waste holding tank with complete instrumentation and automation system. The central plant building included an addition of a 800-ton centrifugal chiller with pumps and a cooling tower with a filtration skid.
