PS&S provided a Basis of Design, Construction Documents, and Commissioning for renovations to an existing vivarium facility in Hopewell, NJ. Vivarium was dedicated to Non-Human Primates and the Wash Room was renovated to include additional wash equipment.
All necessary modifications had to be executed with minimal disruptions to the existing operation. Other project challenges included a consistent low pressure steam supply, restricted site water supply, and revisions to an existing BAS system.
THE PS&S SOLUTION
A new rack/cage washer within the room was added and programmed to coordinate run cycles with the existing cage washer. The VAV system was modified to maintain proper GMP air pressurization. In addition to architectural, structural and MEP services, PS&S also attended to the Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and performed the Site Acceptance Testing (SAT).
