icon mechanical served as the mechanical contractor for this 16,000 SF growth rooms located in Monsanto (now Bayer) Campus in Chesterfield, MO. icon Mechanical was responsible for the installation of all utilities required for growth chambers. This included chilled water, RO water, and compressed air. Additionally, these rooms required underground lab waste to be supplied to a central waste treatment system. Accomplishing this required hundreds of feet of underground lab waste being installed under 12” thick concrete floors. Each of these rooms required HVAC supply and exhaust to bring in fresh air which icon routed from existing supply and exhaust systems.

As a second phase to this project, icon installed the infrastructure to the growth chambers. This consisted of room air handlers, pump racks, humidification dispersion systems, and the ceiling system. The ceiling system was made up of numerous perforated ceiling panels which were used as a plenum to distribute air throughout the room. The project was delivered on time and Monsanto was very satisfied with the deliverable.
