*BAYER HEALTHCARE B14 HVAC Upgrade, Berkeley, CA
M C GUFF PHARMACEUTICAL*
Compounding & Filling (503a &503b) Facility Master Plan Santa Anna, CA
Type: Manufacturing Plant Size: 40,000 SF
The goal of this project was to improve occupant comfort and the energy profile of the nearly 100-year-old Building B14 which was being used by research team for critical future drug products. Project challenges included very limited capital available and architectural constraints of a building constructed before HVAC systems were invented such as low ceilings, and no interstitial space. The project team the Target Costing methodology to prioritize the design features in order to stay within budget as a result of early collaboration between the design team, the contractor, the site facility team and the end user. Project features included replacement of existing air handlers, replacement of windows to reduce heat gain and careful HVAC zoning within the space. The project required detailed implementation planning as the project was installed over several budget years.
Responsible for Master Planning, Options Development, Programming, and Conceptual Design for two separate facilities, 503a &503b. On a Greenfield 80,000 SF & 60,000 SF
AlfaTech was selected to perform design construction management services for the replacement and upgrade of the B55 WFI system. The state-of-the- art replacement WFI system consisted of a single HWFI loop with multiple POU heat exchangers. WFI temperatures at the POUs were controlled using HMI panels. The firm scope of work included: interviews with the users to determine WFI consumption; production of complete WFI design-built and demo bid packages; procurement of owner-furnished components; selection of a design-built contractor; and management of the final design and construction effort.
XOMA THERAPEUTICS Berkeley, CA
Type: cGMP Warehouse, Manufacturing, Research, Pilot Plant Size: 8,000 SF and 10,000 SF
For the Pilot Plant, the project includes conversion of the X-5 pilot plant to a combination of manufacturing and research. Modifications were made to the existing facility, bringing it to current ADA standards, and generally “state-of- the-art” status. For the cGMP warehouse facility, the firm provided full design services which entailed the renovation of an existing facility along with validation support and construction management. The warehouse concept entailed the renovation of an existing facility along with validation support.
THE JACKSON LABORATORY WEST West Sacramento, CA
BAYER HEALTHCARE* Various Projects, Berkeley, CA
Type: R&D Laboratory, Vivarium Size: 91,000 SF
This project involved the relocation of Bayer’s BioAnalytics lab necessitated by the planned demolition of the aging building housing the original lab. The project included redesign of the lab layout to improve workflow and accommodate lab analytical equipment and sample storage freezers, design of gas utilities, wet utilities and waste, electrical power and lighting, cabinetry and architectural finishes.
AlfaTech provided MEP design services for interior improvements to an existing tilt-up concrete warehouse, as well as an expansion into an existing facility. The new use of this space includes West Coast regional offices, animal vivarium, wash/sterilization facilities, various research laboratories, animal shipping/staging/support spaces, mechanical yard, and parking .
XOMA THERAPEUTICS Berkeley, CA
Type: GMP & cGMP Fermentation Suite Size: 5,000 SF and 12,000 SF
NEKTAR THERAPEUTICS San Carlos, CA
For the 5,000 SF Fermentation Suite, AlfaTech provided full design and construction management for its GMP new 2,000 liter fermentation suite along with validation support. Design for the 12,000 SF Suite provided a new cGMP fermentation suite consisting of 50 L, 130L, 500L, 2750L, and 12,000L fermenters. These were fully automated with CIP and SIP capability. In addition, a number of media preparation and purification vessels were specified.
BBRAUN* Site Master Planning, Irvine, CA
Type: Laboratory, Office, Manufacturing Size: 4,000 SF
Responsible for the Site Master Planning Options development and the Facility Planning, Evaluation of criteria and constraints, Developing Options for Steering committee selection. Projected $300 million project
AlfaTech provided design services for the consolidation of the central data center, which will occupy approximately 4,000 SF in a currently unoccupied space for Building 3.
