This was Human Genome Sciences’ new 8,000 sq ft Yeast Clinical Production Suite installed in an existing building located at 9410 Key West Avenue in Rockville, MD. We were responsible for the installation of process and non-process systems such as process chilled water, glycol chilled water, plant steam (High and Medium Pressure) and condensate, acid waste piping, lab gases (O2, N2, CO2) and clean compressed air. A new mechanical room was constructed inside the existing building structure to provide the necessary HVAC utilities for a “stand-alone” clinical production suite. Heffron also prepared and implemented a commissioning plan complete with Turnover Packages and walk-downs of all system – all of which should lead to subsequent successful FDA validation.
Coordinated the installation of the mechanical and process systems with the Owner’s on site representation utilizing the P & ID documents prepared by the Architectural and Engineering firm. Prepared and submitted cost savings analysis for the Owner based upon our review of the documents. Implemented a QC program to ensure compliance with HGS’s strict ductwork cleanliness standards. Completed the job in record time with no jobsite injuries.
