University College Dublin Science Park

Extract Systems - L Lynch & Co Ltd

Overview

Mach-Aire has designed and built the extract systems for the University College Dublin Science Park refurbishment.

The Problem

University College Dublin are currently redeveloping their Science Centre, to create a ‘transformational resource for Irish Science’. Mach-Aire was commissioned by the Mechanical Contractor, L Lynch & Co Ltd, to manufacture and install the extract systems for the initial phase of the redevelopment in 2012.

The Solution

This project has involved Mach-Aire designing, fabricating and GRP all ductwork, with a maximum cross section of 1.9m x 2m. The ducting then had to be delivered to site in Dublin and craned into position. The PVC ducting was required to run 58m along the full length of the building, the main header serves four floors of the university, including room extracts and fume cupboards (which have also been designed, built and installed by Mach-Aire).

After Care

The success of the project to date, and the high quality solution provided, has seen Mach-Aire being commissioned to fabricate and install the ductwork for the following phase of the project, which commenced in early 2013. This phase of ducting will run 24m along the length of the building with a maximum cross section of 3m x 1.5m.
