Holmes, King, Kallquist & Associates
We served as the design-builder on this new 40,000 square foot facility in Cortland, New York. Approximately 20,000 square feet is cleanroom space dedicated to light duty manufacturing of medical-grade cables and sutures. The other half of the building is comprised of office space, meeting areas, a break room, locker rooms, warehouse and shipping spaces.
Cupolex was used as a mitigation technique along with the traditional slab on grade foundation to help ventilate any gases emitted from the soil. The facility has a steel frame structure with an insulated metal panel wall system and TPO membrane roof. The project was completed in about seven months, running from April through October 2018.

We served as Construction Manager for a 75,000 square foot addition and renovation to INFICON’s East Syracuse facility. As a leading provider of instrumentation, sensor technologies and advanced process control software, the $20 million dollar expansion included offices, warehouse space, and expansive cleanrooms for use in manufacturing particle sensors, thin film sensors and AMS. This project required comprehensive BIM coordination for mechanical systems due to the complexity of highly pressure sensitive HVAC and process gas systems. The Building Management System (BMS) was designed and installed to monitor the stringent tolerances allowed for room temperature, pressure and humidity within the cleanrooms.
We also coordinated extensive pre-construction site work and environmental studies. Finished site work included additional parking lots and a storm water retention system.
