P&G Research Laboratory

P&G needed to consolidate two research laboratories into one newly renovated laboratory capable of handling large volumes of flammable, combustible, and hazardous liquids. The newly consolidated laboratory was relocated into an existing office building and pilot research facility. The new facility included wet-chemistry laboratories, a scale-up research laboratory, flammable storage rooms, and constant-temperature constant-humidity storage rooms.

The project kicked-off with a programming study to analyze the feasibility of combining the multiple laboratories into one. Once complete, PEDCO now IMEG provided engineering design services for the new laboratories. The mechanical systems for the project featured three new variable air volume manifold laboratory exhaust systems for the bench top and walk-in type fume hoods and general exhaust. Three new make-up air handling units and variable air volume make-up systems to the laboratory spaces were provided. New utilities including nitrogen, argon, helium, vacuum air, compressed air, and RO water were provided for the new laboratory spaces. The existing building electrical power supply required upgrades for the new laboratories. The electrical design included new electrical distribution for the laboratories and associated research equipment. The project included a backup power generator.
