Axiom Engineers: Commissioning


The Long Marine Laboratory, a major marine research institution on the central coast, has recently been expanded with the completion of the Seymour Marine Discovery Center (aquarium and teaching lab) and the Center for Ocean Health (research laboratories and offices).

Seymour Marine Discovery Center
This facility houses an exhibit space with aquarium exhibits, teaching laboratories and office space for marine researchers. Axiom Engineers℠ design services included HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, seawater filtration, and storage and supply systems.

Center for Ocean Health
After the successful completion of the Seymour Center, the University retained the same design consultant team for the adjacent Center for Ocean Health. This state-of-the-art lab facility houses marine researchers for UCSC and was completed in 2001. The facility consists of wet laboratories with fume hoods, meeting space, and offices. Axiom Engineers℠ design services for this project included HVAC, plumbing (including lab utilities), and fire protection.
