This project entailed demolishing and building walls and ceilings (including walkable ceiling) to enclose the equipment, leveling and sealing floors, supplying all utilities (480v/3 phase and 110v/ single phase power, plant steam, clean steam, WFI and USP water), relocating drain lines and tying into a double walled chemical waste line, relocating HEPA filters, performing standard and ultra-high purity stainless steel welding as well as standard copper plumbing, and interior finishes including epoxy paint and FRP. During the process, the area was never shut down and we worked without compromising the facility’s standards for contamination. The work area was sealed off and maintained as a Class 100,000 clean room. This was confirmed by continuous environmental monitoring for particulate and stray riboflavins and proteins. We also selected the new washer after performing a technology search. It offered a 30% reduction in utility costs while providing 20% more capacity than the existing unit. We created new laminar flow areas within the space that are Class 100.
