THE OPPORTUNITY

PS&S designed renovations to an existing R&D research facility. Project included Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Plumbing, Fire Protection and Electrical Engineering services. Our scope of services included programming, preliminary design, detailed design and construction phase field assistance.

 

THE CHALLENGE

To deliver the necessary renovations, on a fast-track basis, to support 70 laboratory modules to serve a variety of departments: NMR Radioactivity, Research and Development, Process Development, Non-Clinical Drug Metabolism, Chemistry, Analytics and Formulations.


THE PS&S SOLUTION

Each laboratory was uniquely designed to meet personnel and equipment dimensional layouts, equipment utility services, equipment heat loads, fume hood requirement, general exhaust and ventilation requirements and collaboration spaces for scientists to interact. Laboratory modules remained consistent throughout the building and expanded to 2 and 3-module laboratories based on the size and function of the individual departments.

Mechanical HVAC systems were housed within a full top floor penthouse.

Other building HVAC equipment included hot water reheat, HEPA filtered exhaust and dust collection. Building services included compressed air, nitrogen, vacuum, chilled water supply and return and various bottled gases.
