J.C. Higgins’ scope of work involves installation of all HVAC mechanical systems, including hot and chilled water, steam and condensate, supply/exhaust/return air, lab/hood exhaust, steam humidification, and all refrigeration systems.

This project will attempt to achieve a LEED Certified rating; J.C. Higgins will play a significant role in supporting the indoor air quality and commissioning aspects of this certification.
"We are honored to be part of the team for the Sanofi-Aventis Genomics Center that will be creating an environment and facility that will support critical research activities,” stated Ron Ledoux, president and CEO of J.C Higgins. “Having the expertise to help develop this state-of-the-art facility is something in which we take great pride.”
