Tyco Healthcare, Kendall Plant Addition Design-Build,
DeLand, Florida. (ET)

Design manager and project architect for $7.5 million,
62,000-square-foot factory addition to the existing
manufacturing plant for a new product line. This
high-performance building had stringent manufacturing
requirements for indoor air quality and control. Energy
efficient HVAC units, energy efficient lighting and EMS
control system were utilized. An adjacent lake made
stormwater management and ground water quality
extremely sensitive challenges and responded to with
vegetated filter strips, grassed swales, and detention
ponds. Construction consisted of steel frame and steel
panel building with class 100K clean rooms, emergency
power system, docking and warehousing, staff support
facilities and break room, machine shop and mold
maintenance room. Design met rigid HVAC
requirements for temperature and humidity control for
product production rooms in the difficult Central Florida
climactic region. Developed design program with plant
staff and produced conceptual designs. Coordinated
with client's civil engineer and fire suppression
consultants. Met with city planning, building and fire
officials and integrated city requirements into design.
Executed fast-track 12-week design schedule, which
included schematic design, design development, and
construction document phases. Assisted construction
staff in developing material to successfully obtain a
contract for the construction portion of the project, which
then evolved into a design/build project. Design efforts
were coordinated between the Oak Brook, Grand
Rapids, Orlando, Greenville, and San Diego Earth Tech
offices. The savings to the client by end of construction
was nearly $1 million less than the initial total contract.
