Temperature control for Yale Beineke Library

Temperature and humidity controls ensure that stored materials are protected for future generations. For the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, it has become more difficult over the years, especially since the building was built in 1960, which means maintenance is much more difficult. Polygon was tasked with controlling the internal temperature levels without compromising the building structure.

School construction in hot summer months

While deadlines and project details may always seem tight, none seem tighter than those concerning school construction projects. Schools must follow environmental regulations during renovations and new construction to keep students and faculty safe from potential health risks. New masonry construction began at MacArthur Elementary School in New York during the summer, including the gymnasium, library, and three two-story classroom wings. With construction costs near $80,000,000, interior conditions must be maintained during construction to meet design specifications and stay on schedule.

Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge climate control

Scheduled for completion by 2016, Pearl Harbor Memorial is a 10-lane bridge. One of the first extra-dosed cable-stayed bridges constructed in the U.S., it is the centerpiece of a $2.2 billion mega-project to reconstruct and widen 7.2 miles of I-95 in Connecticut between West Haven and Branford.
