GlaxoSmithKline – Mississauga

Completion: July 01, 2007

Location: Mississauga

Size: 24760 sq. ft.

In the spring of 2006, GlaxoSmithKline awarded the manufacture of Avandamet to their Mississauga plant, which then received an upgrade. A four-storey extension of the existing building provided a new shipping and receiving dock, an automated warehouse, multiple levels of manufacturing clean rooms, and mechanical support areas.

Mechanical Systems

Our work covered the following activities:

  • Install new storm, sanitary, and process waste drains
  • Extend the sprinkler and fire stand pipe systems, including fire hose cabinets and wall hydrant
  • Hoist and place nine air handling units and process units into the third- and fourth-floor mechanical rooms
  • Extend chilled water, heating water, and steam and condensate piping from existing systems to provide environmental conditioning of the new addition
  • Install a compressed dry air system to serve process equipment

Project Highlights

Kelson acted as the general mechanical contractor and also took on the role of mechanical construction management. We tendered the mechanical aspects of the project, and participated with the owner in the successful completion of quality control and validation protocols, allowing the manufacturing phase to commence.
