Fleet Readiness Center Opens New Navy Primary Standards Laboratory
LOS ANGELES — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced that Fleet Readiness Center Southwest (FRCSW) recently held a ribbon-cutting event for the completion of a new Calibration Laboratory. FRCSW’s Commanding Officer, Captain Craig Owen along with AECOM Senior Project Manager Marcel Ruegg, cut the ribbon and welcomed the staff of the Navy Primary Standards Laboratory, including members of the team who contributed to building the lab.
FRCSW collaborated with AECOM to develop a design concept, space plan, and operational specifications for the new Calibration Lab. The new “dream lab” includes modernized laboratory infrastructure that allows for increased production and additional contract awards; a 100-percent increase in lab space; a modern, water-saving recirculating system; a solar thermal process heating unit; a high-efficiency chiller; advanced compressors, and an energy management control system with new data cabling, lighting, and flooring. The Calibration Laboratory was completed on schedule and within the budget.
The Primary Standards Laboratory is a division of FRCSW that provides calibration services worldwide. Its civilian and military personnel use a variety of tools and methods to meet standards consistent with those of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The new facility’s premium energy efficient infrastructure and utility service will improve the Primary Standards Laboratory’s ability to serve the fleet and its other customers.
