The new, state-of-the-art, standard-setting Forensic Services and Coroners Complex Facility, slated for completion in 2013, is the first of it’s kind this size in North America. The facility accommodates a forensic laboratory, medilogical autopsy and coroner’s courts complex, with all critical compressed air requirements provided by DV Systems.
Promoting the use of sustainable energy alternatives, the high performance complex has been built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification standards, focusing on healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the efficient use of energy, water and other resources.
In addition to biology, toxicology, chemistry, firearms, electronics, document & photo analysis departments, vehicle examination bays and ballistics facilities, the FSCC facility will also include Canada’s first Containment Level 3 autopsy suite, mitigating the risk of airborne contaminants. A robust and reliable ventilation system is an integral element of a facility with such sensitive applications.
DV Systems’ worked closely with Modern Niagara, who managed the mechanical systems in the complex, supplying all compressed air requirements in the facility, from the mechanical bays and garage area to HVAC controls and the lab and autopsy stations. The core components of the monitored, compressed air system are two DV Systems Variable Speed Drive 75 HP and one fixed-speed 50 HP Rotary Screw Compressors.
The critical air supply is treated by DV air purifying systems, integrating regenerative air dryers, filtration, and DV’s unique ETC Oil-Free units, completely eliminating any traces of oil-aerosols, achieving ISO Class 0 oil-free compressed air standards.
The FSCC Project’s progressive, standard-setting initiatives ultimately result in a world-class facility, positioning itself amongst the best-in-class in its industry. DV Systems shares this commitment to innovation, continuously striving to improve our product offerings and provide high-performance, high efficiency compressed air solutions and service. DV Systems is pleased to be part of such an exceptional project. Learn more about us at dvsystems.ca.
