Fast-track project to convert the mechanical systems of existing manufacturing and office facility for specific pharmaceutical manufacturing and research and development needs. Due to the aggressive project time frame, the submittal review process was expedited. Arden, the general manager, Skanska, engineers, Genesis, and the major equipment vendors held multiple submittal meetings to make necessary corrections for a same-day submittal. The equipment vendors were present to answer the engineer’s questions and provide feedback on lead times and technical questions or options. This allowed Arden to release long lead items within a week of receiving the notice to proceed from Skanska.
Arden performed all the demo work, furnished and installed all mechanical equipment, including (9) pumps, (2) condensing boilers, heating and cooling coils, chemical treatment equipment, glycol feed equipment, lab gas manifolds, filters, and regulators, along with all related piping and plumbing work.
Unique Metal Works furnished all the ductwork and insulation.
