Laboratory and R&D Facilities for Medical Technology

Biosite, a forward-thinking, San Diego-based medical-technology firm, recently received FDA approval for a revolutionary device that can help emergency room doctors quickly determine whether a patient is experiencing heart problems.

Bergelectric teamed up with electrical engineer ILA + Zammit Engineering Group to complete the project’s electrical infrastructure, spearheading site utilities and site-lighting support for the four buildings and heading up complete tenant improvements.

“This was a comprehensive and challenging job,” said Berg’s Project Manager Rick Greenwell, who notes that this phase of the campus encompasses an 85,000-s.f. office building, a 75,000-s.f. research and development building, and two 95,000-s.f. building for manufacturing, laboratories and warehouse.

According to Greenwell, the intensive schedule required close coordination among all the team members – including Construction Manager Graham Anderson of Campbell Anderson and Associates and general contractor Reno Contracting.

Though well-equipped to meet the challenge, Berg had to overcome several major hurdles during this project, among them limited site access and mobility due to the use of a 250-ton crane for precast panel installation.
