Puritan Medical Expansion P4 - Barry Drive

Scope of Work

Cianbro served as the design-build general contractor for Puritan Medical Product's Orlinda, Tennessee, facility. The facility enables Puritan to produce 200 million foam-tipped test swabs per month and has a building footprint of more than 330,000 square feet. The existing facility, located at 3150 Barry Drive in Orlinda, was renovated in less than eight months.

Project Details
  • Erected over 1,300 tons of mezzanine steel for installation of new manufacturing, electrical, and plumbing equipment
  • Installed:
    • Heating, ventilation, and air condition systems utilizing 15 air handling units, six dedicated outdoor air system units, and three chillers
    • Over 70,000 linear feet of piping (compressed air, CHWS/R, HWS/R, condensate, fire protection, domestic water, and natural gas)
    • Over 450,000 linear feet of cable and wire (power distribution, lighting, and controls)
  • Assisted client with the installation of foam tipping machines and MultiVac machines
Lean, Innovative and Unique Project Solutions

The project focused on expediting a design-and-build schedule that turned over portions of the facility to Puritan in six phases. The first phase turnover took less than five months, and the final phase turnover took less than eight months. The team utilized an interim chiller unit while the facility's permanent chiller was being manufactured. Each team member also wore a Spot-r clip, which served as both the site's badges and a fall detection alert system.
