NEW ENGLAND MECHANICAL SERVICES VALUE DELIVERED
Bristol-Myers Squibb's mission is "to bring needed medicines to patients worldwide as quickly as possible." This facility demands 100% uptime. A power outage could mean the loss of many years of research work; any downtime at all is unacceptable.
MECHANICAL & FACILITIES SERVICES SCOPE OF WORK
At the Bristol-Myers Squibb research facility, NEMSI provides mechanical and facilities services, energy solutions, and electrical construction for over one million square feet of research space, managed by 18 on-site NEMSI engineers and facilities technicians. In 2001, we retrofitted an extensive building automation and control system that turned 169 laboratories into separate environmental zones with accelerated air exchange flows. By placing sensors and controls in every laboratory, Bristol-Myers Squibb estimates that we generated an average energy cost savings for them of $240,000 per year, and that sum does not even include the labor cost savings also achieved!

We have installed an extensive electrical system of remotely-controlled Direct Digital Control (DDC), life safety systems, and card access systems, as well as closed-circuit in-house and perimeter security systems. We also operate and provide HVAC maintenance for the facility's own central utility plant, which contains 8,600 tons of cooling capacity and a five megawatt co-generator.
