Project Experience

Editas Medicine Process Development Lab

Build-out of 2,500 SF Process Development lab for a pharmaceutical developer. The project consisted of all new mechanical/HVAC systems to support a new lab including a new exhaust system for fume hoods, new makeup air handler, and rework of existing supply and return ductwork. The electrical scope included new service entrance to the building with a larger transformer from Xcel, new main distribution gear, and all new branch circuitry to support the new lab and benches. The room was equipped with large fume hoods, custom benches, articulating exhaust booms and flammable liquid lockers.

Agilent Technologies Tank Farm Vapor Suppression 

This project was developed solely for the addition of a dedicated water/ foam/vapor fire suppression system to serve an existing hazardous storage tank farm. The fire suppression system included an automatic Vapor LEL gas detection system, manual release station and deluge foam reporting control panel that interfaced with the main building fire alarm panel. To support the new system a new addition to the existing building was constructed to house a new water service entry and hold the new foam tank and distribution piping.
The addition was build on deep caissons, slab on grade and structural framing. A new 6” fire service line was tapped into the existing fire main and brought into the new addition. The wet fire line that served the tank storage area was fed across the roof. The line had to be installed and coordinated with the existing structure for support as well as designed to drain when not in use or inactive to avoid freezing. At the existing tank farm area in which the suppression system served we removed and recoated the containment area with new epoxy.

Sandoz IBC Washer

Installation of a new, Owner provided IBC Washer. Included expansion of an existing production suite within the production area. Because of the location of the work within the existing production area of the facility, robust area protection and containment were required. This included visqueen floor to structure and coreplast enclosures surrounding the project site. This further required the construction of a temporary air lock/change room at the entry point into the project, including a negative air condition.
