Mar Lan Construction was selected as the Design-Builder for this 50,000 square foot expansion project to the Plastikon Healthcare manufacturing facility in Lawrence. The expansion provides additional space for manufacturing clean rooms and warehousing. The design-build expansion was designed around three large scale medical grade manufacturing/packaging suites (Classification 8).
The energy-efficient building shell is comprised of 35’ tall insulated precast panels for the walls, structural steel roof, windows and skylights for natural lighting, and all LED lighting throughout the facility. The building’s interior contains 10,000 square feet designated as clean room laboratories, fill and packaging, while the remaining space is allocated for warehouse distribution and transportation. A processed water loop system for integration into the manufacturing equipment and chilled water HVAC was provided. The exterior façade was designed to integrate into the existing building aesthetics. As a Design-Build project, all parties were integrated into all aspects of design, construction, and Owner equipment installation to ensure a seamless and smooth project completion.
