Integra Life Science

Integra decided to upgrade their entire facility area, including mechanical and electrical systems and all control panels and new operator interfaces. M. Davis & Sons was able to bring in the manpower and the different trades to meet this labor-intensive, fast-paced project—65 to 70 men working 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 10 weeks.

Scope of Work

Complete a total mechanical and electrical renovation of approximately 15,000 square feet of an active sterile pharmaceutical production facility. The space consisted of approximately 10,000 square feet of sterile corridor and production clean rooms (level 100,000) with the balance of the space being the mechanical/electrical equipment space that supported the sterile areas. The clean room was pulled offline and isolated from the remaining production spaces while the work was being done. It was imperative to complete the work in such a short amount of time because of the impact a long-term shutdown of the whole facility would have on the company’s revenue.

The project also included electrical, mechanical and structural upgrades to the facility’s roof to support the addition of two (2) new 5,400 CFM air handling units dedicated to the renovated space.
