The CPS Lab project consisted of renovating an existing retail/warehouse space into the new office & laboratory facility for Comprehensive Pain Specialists. The existing building was a 13,000 square feet 2 story building. The top floor consisted of showroom and office space while the ground floor was primarily warehouse and dock space. The lower level was renovated to serve as the primary lab space. Converting an existing warehouse space to a state of the art lab required a substantial amount of Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical upgrades to serve it’s new purpose. The lab space consisted of receiving/sorting area, sample prep, walk in coolers and several specimen testing stations with state of the art laboratory equipment.
Providing the required MEP services to all this equipment required intense coordination due to the Open Lab/Workflow layout the owner wanted. Additionally, as a result of the highly sophisticated equipment, an emergency generator was installed to prevent a power loss during testing. Such a loss could result in ruined specimens , costly and time consuming start up, as well as, re-calibration of the equipment. The upper floor was renovated to include a new modern Conference Room, State-of-the-Art Training Area, executive and support staff offices, work areas, a generous employee break area and a modern, inviting open entry area that serves as a lobby, common/lounge area for both the conference and training spaces.
