Greiner Bio-one Vacuette North America has established itself as the number one supplier of innovative plastic medical sample collection products. This division serves hospitals, blood banks, doctors and industrial clients, and saw a need to expand their existing facility to accommodate their need for additional manufacturing space. The expansion includes a Level 3 polish slab-on-grade, relocation of the HVAC equipment, mezzanine for future office space, and precast exterior. The structural steel frame includes an 80′ span to accommodate two overhead cranes for manufacturing operations.
The 100,000-SF addition to the existing injection mold manufacturing facility for Greiner Bio-One marks the second industrial project with Choate Construction Company. The addition consists of an independent structural steel frame, with open web bar joists clad in insulated precast concrete panels.
Inside the addition there is a 15,000-SF mezzanine, with executive office areas on the upper level and lab areas with clean room spaces below. Air quality is extremely important in the manufacturing areas. The HVAC system works with a system of air lock chambers and high-speed air curtains maintain tight control over air pressure, humidification, particulate matter and temperature in the manufacturing and lab spaces. Special coordination and construction measures are needed to perform work inside the existing area, as the plant must remain in full operation during construction.
