MECHANICAL SERVICES SCOPE OF WORK
Amgen required mechanical construction design/assist services for a new three-story office building and one-story cafeteria on their corporate campus located in Longmont, Colorado. This mechanical construction project involved a GMP control system, extensive underground domestic water, sanitary waste and vent piping that serviced the 400 person per hour cafeteria. Chilled water, domestic water and high-pressure steam were connected to utilities via exposed piping that was routed over 350 feet of existing roof.
BIOTECH & HEALTHCARE FACILITY BACKGROUND
Applied Molecular Genetics, Inc, also known as Amgen Inc., was established as a California corporation in 1980. It commenced operations in 1981. The company became Amgen prior to its initial public offering in 1983.
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SERVICES OBJECTIVES
Amgen sought to expand and upgrade their laboratories to meet the industry's growth pace.
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS
The original mechanical construction project required Trautman & Shreve, Inc. to take the lead with development of 3D CAD fully coordinated drawings. These building information modeling (BIM) diagrams included schematics for structural, electrical, fire protection, mechanical and plumbing systems. In doing so, Trautman & Shreve, Inc. identified architectural, structural, and other discipline conflicts to coordinate proper construction project documentation prior to construction. This provided significant efficiencies in the field through a maximized fabrication process while eliminating the need for rework.
