Stryker Medical, a Fortune 500 medical equipment company, was planning to open a new research lab to develop cutting edge products in Cambridge. Stryker called upon Construction Coordinators, Inc. (CCI) to build it for them because of CCI’s record of success in the medical construction field.
The construction of a medical lab posed unique challenges. One obstacle was the installation of the lab equipment: CCI had to transport the instruments with the utmost care to avoid jostling the sensitive electronics. CCI also had to ensure that the heating and air conditioning were able to maintain exact temperatures as needed. The most difficult aspect of the job, though, was the plumbing. The medical research required several different specialized plumbing lines, each carrying a specified fluid—one line transported away the lab waste, for example, while another carried reverse-osmosis deionized water (essentially pure water with no contaminants). Installing each of the lines individually was a time-consuming process, and as a whole it was an extensive project. Nonetheless, CCI got each of the lines up and running without issue.
Stryker’s equipment saves lives each day across the world in hospitals and clinics , and CCI’s efforts allow them to do so more effectively than ever before.
