We began working with LifeLabs at its Mississauga location in 2015, including a detailed, phased renovation of more than 70,000 sf of specialized laboratory environments.
Construction was 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.
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 takes up over 7,000 sf. Additionally, the design incorporated the addition of a Sodium Azide (Na+) wastewater treatment system allowing the wastewater 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
Architecture, Laboratory Consultation
Science & Research
Partners & sub consultants
