P2S Magazine Issue 1 - Page 3

Editor’s Note Dear Reader, Kent Peterson Vice President/COO Laboratory facility operators go to great lengths to ensure the safety of their occupants. With potentially hazardous materials within breathing distance of users, lab HVAC systems must stand ready to respond to any incident. Effective ventilation that quickly sweeps contaminants away is a crucial safety mechanism to cope with eventualities. Labs need optimal HVAC equipment and utilities to provide that ventilation. They also need utilities that allow specialized lab equipment like fume hoods to properly function. Lab designers need to take these special considerations into account, while also delivering the most efficient systems possible, as for more conventional buildings. P2S does exactly that. With recent successes at UC Irvine and Sacramento State currently under construction and more projects in design, the P2S Laboratory Group has been busy and shows no signs of slowing down. Accordingly, this issue of P2S Magazine highlights our laboratory design personnel, unique capabilities and paradigm shifting projects. We speak with Laboratory Market Leader, Nathan Ho, and highlight choice laboratory projects of which we are especially proud. As always, please enjoy reading this issue of P2S Magazine. I hope that you are well on your way to achieving your 2019 goals and enjoy a lovely spring. Sincerely, 3
