Smithfield, RI Pariseault Builders has completed substantial renovations to deliver a new facility for High Purity New England (HPNE), a leading supplier of single use solutions for the biopharmaceutical industry. The project benefited from an integrated approach with n|e|m|d architects and the collaborative efforts yielded a facility that was built to drive down industry lead times and engineered to accelerate HPNE’s output.
Pariseault Builders worked hand in hand with HPNE’s team to ensure the 27,000 s/f of clean room & lab environments, manufacturing space, distribution center, and additional office space provided a new and elite workplace for HPNE to provide their customers with the assemblies they require. The specialized scope called for the architectural, engineering, and construction teams to provide significant preconstruction support regarding the MEP/FP components of the project.
“Having delivered so many hospital projects over the years certainly helps our efforts in the biopharma and science & technology space,” said Pariseault’s president Brian Casey. “We deliver anywhere from 60-80 medical projects each year of varying complexities, so labs/cleanrooms, and pretty much all sensitive spaces are somewhat of a niche for us.”
In addition to a new 8,000 s/f cleanroom space, the building now offers a number of other features for the company including a mezzanine level, an extensive laboratory featuring four suites, an auditorium, a mock cleanroom for onboarding employees to practice gowning and S.O.P. training, and two floors of warehouse space for materials and finished goods. The facility also had additional office space fit-out to provide community space to industry and local organizations, such as the Boys & Girls’ Club of RI and RI Bio.
This specialty manufacturing and distribution center facility is HPNE’s 3rd such facility and the newly completed space has increased their manufacturing capacity substantially.
