Space Needs Study | New York, NY

Established in 1892, the Public Health Laboratory was the world's first Municipal Bacteriological Laboratory. In the century since its first campaign, to control diphtheria in New York City, the bureau has expanded to provide a wide variety of clinical and environmental laboratory testing services. Today’s Public Health Laboratory performs testing on more than 200,000 specimens it receives annually, for everything from anthrax, HIV, rabies and Zika to food-borne illnesses, along with processing other tests conducted at the city’s public hospitals and sexual-health clinics. The feasibility study project for the new 9-story building for the New York City Public Health Laboratory system is to be located at 137th Street between 5th Avenue and Lenox Avenue in Harlem, Manhattan and contains approximately 230,000 sf.

Alongside Perkins Eastman, Setty provided a space needs study that includes the new facilities’ functional Space Program Requirements, a set of Conceptual Design plans and a Project Cost Estimate that will become the basis for moving forward with the new PHL building. Setty developed Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection systems and refined with DOH & PHL plant operations and facilities personnel input. These narratives were used to inform the construction budget that was developed for this study. The space types covered in this study included BSL-3 Laboratories, Chemical and cold room storage, specimen intake, processing lab, conference rooms, community clinics, auditorium, training lab, support facilities, & office work stations.

HVAC Commissioning Services

Long Island City, NY

UOVO | HVAC Commissioning Services | Long Island City, NY

As part of the UOVO 41-54 22nd Street Art Storage Facility Project, Setty was contracted to provide partial Mechanical Systems Commissioning services to Art Deluxe for this climate controlled building in, Queens, NY. The purpose of the commissioning was to ensure the smooth progression of the construction project, and the proper completion and testing of the mechanical systems.

The facility is an art storage space for private individuals and institutions, such as museums. This type of storage requires a conditioning and control strategy with a high degree of precision and redundancy in order to prevent temperature or humidity swings that could result in damage to the art. The facility is six stories, and Setty is responsible for commissioning the controls system, rooftop outdoor air system, and a sample of the heating and cooling equipment in the spaces. Mechanical equipment includes gas and electric humidity generators, direct expansion cooling, and gas and electric heating.

Setty is providing commissioning services for the mechanical systems and controls, including helping to design robust sequences of operations, and to train facilities personnel to conduct functional performance testing on future projects with similar equipment. The commissioning project will provide UOVO with turned-over systems that are high performing and reliable, maximizing their value and sharing the expertise to bring future projects to completion just as successfully.

State University Construction Fund | Replace AHUs Campus Center |
Old Westbury, New York

SETTY is currently providing professional engineering services to the SUNY State University Construction Fund for the replacement of major mechanical and electrical equipment within the F Wing of the Campus Center at State University College at Old Westbury. The $4.5 million engineering systems maintenance program is part of an overall facilities upgrade including envelope and roof replacements. The Campus Center is comprised of two buildings, constructed in the 1970’s, each having 4 wings that are all connected together. Disparate mechanical systems serve the various facilities and many of the components are in fair to poor condition, and due to their age, are inherently inefficient. An additional design challenge for this replacement program, is to maintain throughout the construction period, continuity of operations of the classrooms, offices, Visual Arts Department, Student Health Center and other student services type spaces.

Replacement of the following systems/equipment is anticipated:


  • Air Handling Units
  • Chilled Water and Hot Water coils
  • Isolation Valves
  • DDC Dampers
  • DDC Controls
  • Return air fans
  • Electric reheat coils
  • Distribution ductwork
  • Toilet Exhaust Fans with Direct Drive
  • Kitchen Ventilation (H wing)
  • Clean all ductwork
