If by this you mean that computers and chemicals will share the room, I'd
advise against it. Especially if the chemicals include some acids or
volatile substances... Giving that on my university diploma it's written
"biochemist"  I think that I know what I'm talking about :-)
Even with non-dangerous substances, if some of them are obtained 
commercially they might cost an arm and a leg and even something extra, so 
the owners should know what can happen if the cooling installation fails 
for some reason...
