The research laboratories located in CECS are hosting post-graduation and undergraduation students. Furthermore, several high technology scientific instruments of elevated cost are located in the CECS laboratories and are bound to research projects. In this regard, an emergency demand for adaptation of the ar-conditioning infrastructure has emerged to attend these labs, thus avoiding that the scientific instruments are subjected to overheating that, in turn, can lead to loss of research data and instrument failure.
