Chesapeake Biological Laboratries Building B

Design/build of an existing steel fabrication facility into a 9,000 SF, cGMP smallpox vaccine filling facility. Process systems included biowaste and process waste systems, water-for-injection, pure steam and clean air. Installed equipment included a 120 SF lyophilizer, 120 vial/minute vial filler, three autoclaves and depyrogenation oven.

The facility was designed and built in 72 days. Whiting-Turner self-performed the concrete, steel and process/mechanical piping work. Time constraints required the installation of temporary utilities (350 Hp boiler, two 525-ton chillers and two 533-ton cooling towers).
