GlaxoSmithKline - Building 4 Level 4 Renovation - Upper Providence Township, PA

This 38,000 square foot floor in building 4 was originally designed as standard office space for GSK’s Oncology group. As part of their move toward open office and Smart Working, this floor was renovated to provide a healthy and more collaborative working environment. Wick Fisher White provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design to support this new space which included sustainable strategies.  Energy efficient elements included advanced lighting control, low flow plumbing fixtures and the use of occupancy sensors to limit ventilation in unoccupied areas.

GlaxoSmithKline - Consumer Headquarters Lab Cx - Warren, NJ

GSK leased 109,000 sf of shell office and lab space in Warren, NJ in order to house its new joint venture, Consumer Healthcare Headquarters with Novartis.  Wick Fisher White was responsible for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design as well as the commissioning of the lab area on floor one.  Throughout the process WFW determined items that were not completed during construction as well as areas that needed to be fined tuned – ultimately ensuring that client goals were achieved. 

HVAC Systems that were commissioned included the following: 

  • Supply, Return and Exhaust air distribution
  • Reheat coils
  • Building Automation System controls
  • Air Handler ( DX )
  • Exhaust Fans
  • Heat Recovery System
  • Lab Services including Compressed Air

GlaxoSmithKline - Consumer Healthcare Headquarters - Warren NJ

GSK leased 109,000 sf of shell office space in Warren, NJ in order to house its new joint venture, Consumer Healthcare Headquarters with Novartis. Wick Fisher White was responsible for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services of administration areas, a research laboratory space and a new state of the art shopper science lab. The administration and laboratory area is a smart working program with an open floor plan to better foster collaboration while allowing for a flexible workplace.  The shopper science lab is approximately 10,000 sf and consists of real life store environments to analyze shopper behavior, theater spaces, collaboration rooms for meetings with retail clients and a sensory laboratory space. It also included one of the world’s largest seamless touchscreens to provide a 3D visualization of a retail environment.

GlaxoSmithKline - Corporate Headquarters (Navy Yard) - Philadelphia, PA

Wick Fisher White provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for the fit-out of 205,000 sf of space on four floors of the 5 Crescent Drive building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The fit-out space included large open offices areas with raised floor system for electrical distribution, multiple conference/team rooms, a large multi-purpose room, a cafeteria and kitchen, a full fitness center with class room, and small communications/data center and IDF server rooms throughout the building. Supplemental cooling was designed by WFW to support the fitness center, multipurpose room and all IT rooms. The project received double platinum LEED certification, and the MEP systems were designed to help the tenant achieve this goal.  Construction began in September of 2012 and was completed in January 2014.

GlaxoSmithKline - US Vaccines Headquarters - Rockville, MD

GlaxoSmithKline opened a new global vaccines R&D center at 14200 Shady Grove Road in Rockville, MD.  The site is one of three global vaccines R&D centers for GSK.  Wick Fisher White was responsible for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design for the renovation of the administrative spaces.  The existing space consisted of a multi-story building which was divided into three wings. Included in the renovated space was approximately 8,000 square feet on the second floor and the entire third floor in wing A. In addition, a total of 20,000 square feet of space was renovated in Wings B and C in various locations on the second and third floors. The administration and laboratory area is a smart working program with an open floor plan to better foster collaboration while allowing for a flexible workplace. 

 

GlaxoSmithKline - Various Cx Projects - Upper Merion, PA

Building 3 Air Handling Units

Wick Fisher White performed the commissioning for two new redundant 85 ton, 100% outside air, air handling systems that serve a vivarium area at GlaxoSmithKline’s Research & Development facility. The system’s control requirements were very complex with stringent tolerances for temperature, humidity and air change rates. The system utilized existing air-to-air heat exchangers to conserve energy.  This project occupied several months of testing to complete due to the complexity, limited access and criticality of the areas it serves. WFW worked with the control contractor to identify issues and assisted to resolve them in a timely manner.

Building 26 Air Handling Units

Wick Fisher White commissioned the air handling units serving the critical LAS building for GSK. WFW developed the commissioning plan that spelled out for the owner what they could expect from all involved parties. WFW prepared construction check lists which were used to verify all equipment that arrived on the job site were as specified and not damaged. Functional checklists were performed based on the design engineers requirements and functional tests were performed on all equipment to insure that it functioned in accordance with the owner’s and engineer‘s requirements. Pressure differential relationships were performed to keep critical areas clean from debris. 100% outside air systems were utilized in the critical floor. At the conclusion, this complex HVAC system that included multiple air handlers, heat exchangers and individual constant volume temperature control boxes for each space, performed exactly as the design engineer had intended.

Building 21, 24 and 28 Retro-Cx 

Wick Fisher White performed the retro-commissioning for the Upper Merion Campus control valve replacement project located in the Pharmaceutical Research Buildings 21, 24 and 28. These buildings are used for critical research work with labs consisting of chemical and cell sciences, medicinal chemistry and synthetic chemistry. The work was focused on the chilled water and hot water valves for the associated air handling units serving laboratory spaces. WFW and GSK determined in the planning phase that many of the two way valves were passing water when closed, requiring additional heating to compensate for passing chilled water valves and additional cooling to compensate for passing hot water valves. The investigation phase work began involving the assistance of a balancing contractor, to check for any flow through closed valves based upon a representative sample of the air handling units. WFW documented the results in a basis of design for the project, which included modified sequences of operation.  Design responsibilities for the project included the writing of functional test procedures for testing. WFW was present for all testing and assisted in the verification of proper valve control.

Shire Pharmaceuticals Coporate Headquaters - Wayne, PA

Wick Fisher White provided mechanical, plumbing and electrical design services for the renovation and fit-out of 114,000 square feet of existing office space at 1200 Morris Drive in Chesterbrook, PA for the expansion of Shire Pharmaceuticals' North American Corporate Headquarters. The renovations included the replacement of all the building's existing HVAC systems and substantial modifications and upgrades to the existing electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems. In addition to corporate office space, the building houses a large IDF server room, multiple meeting/conference rooms and a full service kitchen and cafeteria.
