VoltAir provided MEP, fire protection, and technology infrastructure to support the faculty’s teaching and research needs in both laboratory classroom and research settings which are focused on the study of marine ecologies and habitats. Other program spaces in this academic facility include a large multipurpose auditorium, lobby, offices, a conference room, and catering service room. The mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and technology systems for the research labs and classrooms are designed as standalone systems within their system controls setup.

The technology scope includes technology systems consulting services for the complete structured cabling system and pathways for the audiovisual and security systems. The structured cabling design includes CAT6 horizontal cabling, and fiber-optic and copper cabling between the telecommunications rooms on each floor and the existing
campus main distribution frame (MDF), and the telecommunications room layout in the new building.
