The team including Northrop Grumman UK, Northrop Grumman US and the United States Defence Department a building was selected and a team of Contractors had to expedite the special requirements of the specification of the test rooms to a detailed programme whilst working to stringent information controls.
The system designed, incorporated multiple VRF air conditioning systems with heat recovery ventilation to numerous offices, workshops and stores. Additional systems included close control ventilation systems to clean room conditions for the test rooms.
