A Different Look At Engineering
The field of engineering runs in many directions and, at Merrick, those directions lead to the development of solutions to highly technical, complex challenges. The following provides some insights into some of those challenges taken on by Merrick’s engineers.
National Institute of Standards & Technology
Merrick recently completed a significant project at NIST's research reactor. Age of the facility was an increasing concern and, as part of that, the cooling structure. Merrick, under a design-build contract, designed a retrofit to the research reactor. As a retrofit project, it was modeled extensively in order to reach the best design scenario and prototypes were eveloped. The cooling system was installed during a shutdown of the reactor. Following the installation, Merrick commissioned the system.
