A Design Challenge

Following a chilled water study and subsequent preliminary design that launched the project into the design/build phase, Randall Lamb provided electrical engineering for an expansion for BioMarin Pharmaceutical, who develops and commercializes innovative biopharmaceuticals for serious diseases and medical conditions. The electrical engineering scope of services for the cGMP validated facility included full design and construction support for a 1.2 megawatt emergency power generator, new 3000 amp electrical service, cleanrooms, bioreactors, as well as full 3D/Revit modeling of all electrical equipment and conduit. This was a challenging project due to the coordination of conduit and piping in an extremely restricted space.
