This facility will more than double their advanced therapies testing capacity for their cell and gene therapy clients. WuXi’s continued growth in Philadelphia reinforces the cities standing as one of the nation’s most dynamic hubs for the life science and healthcare industries. This building adds to the rapidly growing life sciences community at the Navy Yard and is part of the reason why Philadelphia has been dubbed “Cellicon Valley”.

The projects consulting mechanical engineer, Precis Engineering, turned to UEP Northeast for assistance with their strict temperature and humidity control requirements. The VSRT Steam Boilers were selected as part of the humidity control system because of their industry leading steam quality and efficiency. 15:1 turndown and O2 compensation were just a few of the features that made Endura+ Hydronic boilers an easy choice. UEP Northeast also provided the exhaust systems for the boilers, which included Schebler P-Series double wall exhaust piping and Enervex exhaust and combustion air fans.
