We began working with LifeLabs at its Mississauga location in 2015, working with the company on a detailed, complex and phased renovation of more than 70,000 sf of specialized lab environments.
Involving multiple phases, the project is one of the most complex we have created. Construction has been active in live operating laboratory buildings, making extensive coordination of construction activities, equipment moves, equipment calibration and recommissioning critical to the project’s success. We coordinated the FF&E and commissioning, while also balancing the input and requirements of multiple stakeholder groups within the company, and integration with the overall corporate direction.
A specialized, measured approach
The project integrates two of the largest automated High Volume Chemistry lines in North America. These HVC Lines include up to 20 analyzers and refrigerated storage. Each take up over 7,000 sf. Additionally, the design incorporated the addition of a Sodium Azide (Na+) waste water treatment system allowing the waste water to be treated prior to waste entering the sanitary system. As a result, we ensure the cleanest lab waste possible, reaching standards which significantly exceed those required by the municipality.
Our scope encompassed multiple laboratories, including:
- High Volume Chemistry
- Special Chemistry
- Support and infrastructure spaces
We continue to work with Life Labs on multiple sites throughout Ontario.
