Design-assist of a 214,000 sf lab/office project with GMP warehouse and a full cafeteria. In addition to the common lab services, this project included GMP clean areas, a WFI system, clean steam, a validated purified water system, LN2, industrial waste treatment, and extensive monitoring of owner equipment. The entire project was designed and built in less than 12 months, requiring the highest level of integration between the design and construction teams to allow construction to progress while design was ongoing.

Design-assist of 275,000 sf ground-up campus manufacturing/lab/office building. Scope included HVAC, plumbing and process piping for the building including 50,000 sf of manufacturing space. Project also included the addition of 1,600 tons of capacity to the existing campus central plant.
Start / Completion Date: September 2010 / April 2012 The scope included: Process and environmental chilled water/heating hot waterPiping systems include copper, carbon steel, stainless steel and PVC. Our controls team installed open architecture controls on both process and environmental systems.
The centerpiece is a 90-ton cyclotron, a machine that accelerates protons to 70% of the speed of light creating a beam that can reach tumors that are up to 14 inches deep.
The most unique aspect of this project is that through super-cooling of the cyclotron core (to about 3° Kelvin) the power draw is reduced to a fraction of that of similar facilities. The beam can also be shaped in three dimensions to avoid harming surrounding healthy tissues, targeting tumors with unprecedented accuracy
