Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Module L Facility
Lawrenceville, NJ

This highly integrated project involved many of Syska Hennessy Group's divisions, as we were responsible for providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, central utilities, telecommunications, security and vertical transportation systems design for the facility.

The Bristol-Myers Squibb pharmaceutical company turned to Syska Hennessy Group to provide complete systems design for Module "L", a new 148,000 sf chemical research building on the site of its existing research and development complex in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. As we move into the next millennium, this state-of-the-art facility will accommodate new drug development programs while attracting the best researchers and scientists to Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Syska Hennessy Group applied its extensive lab/research and development experience to the specific needs of this project which included flexibility, the development of an open workspace, and the accommodation of state-of-the-art equipment. Specific engineering challenges included designing systems, especially those for exhaust, that allow for critical noise control, as well as working within particular guidelines relative to height restrictions and environmental physical constraints. Sound attenuators were designed and implemented on building exhaust systems to ensure that noise transmission to the property line is within acceptable community requirements. In addition, a value-engineering process was utilized to determine the most economic way to accomplish the goals of the project.

A "lessons learned" process was utilized to understand BMS staff's concerns with the existing campus facilities and helped us implement various user/client group needs.
