TRAUTMAN & SHREVE VALUE DELIVERED
- Mechanical Design/Build Services
- Met local and FDA requirements in the face of unique challenges
This design/build construction project consisted of expansion of operations to meet present and anticipated future growth while consolidating current operations from several remote facilities.
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SCOPE OF WORK
- Building 61 -- approximately 7000 square feet - It was converted to pharmaceutical laboratories, manufacturing, office space, and shipping and receiving. The interior of the building was removed and the following new systems were installed to meet the requirements: commercial HVAC equipment was installed to meet the air quality requirements; new waste and vent systems were installed to accommodate the collection and disposal of waste chemicals and fumes; and process gas systems were installed in the laboratories.
- Building 62 -- 13,000 square feet - A two-story commercial office space. The second level was converted to a Class A office space for the company headquarters. The first floor consisted of R&D laboratories, customer laboratories, chemical waste and storage, accounting and employee lounge. Similar mechanical and process systems were installed, such as commercial HVAC systems, waste and vent systems, and process gas systems. In building 62 the air quality issues were exacerbated due to the second floor space.

MECHANICAL DESIGN/BUILD SOLUTIONS
The challenge of the mechanical design/build process was to find piping materials compatible with the different chemicals that could be used in Proligo's Research & Development and manufacturing processes while meeting local code and FDA requirements. The challenge of the mechanical construction portion was to convert existing commercial office space into a state-of-the-art pharmaceutical facility.
The original construction project required Trautman & Shreve, Inc. to take the lead in mechanical design/build services with development of 3-D CAD fully coordinated drawings. These Building Information Modeling (BIM) diagrams included HVAC services and schematics for structural, electrical, fire protection services, mechanical and plumbing systems. In doing so, Trautman & Shreve, Inc. identified architectural, structural, and other discipline confl icts to coordinate proper construction documentation prior to construction. This provided significant efficiencies in the field through a maximized fabrication process while eliminating the need for rework.
