MECO Vapor Compression Still

Cannon Building replaced three water-for-injection stills with a single new MECO still of equivalent capacity. Structural concrete as well as an existing open air canopy were modified to provide adequate support and clearance to safely lift and set the new equipment into place. The replacement resulted in improved energy conservation and operator safety as well as providing adequate capacity for existing and future production demands from surrounding manufacturing centers.

Design/Build of Solvent Synthesis Production Trains, Solvent Storage, and Distribution System

Cannon Building installed a ground-up solvent tank farm, distribution system, and waste collection system. The project included a large steel scope of work including a 2,000 SF structural steel mezzanine and two three-story polished stainless steel working platforms.

Medical Devices Production Cleanroom

Cannon Building worked closely with the medical device manufacturer from an early point in design, evaluating the proposed construction of this 20,871 SF area, identifying and procuring critical long lead time materials and equipment. Cannon Building brought in the critical M, E, & P subcontractors to involve them in the process. Managing the severely limited access, producing a containment plan, and obtaining road closure permits for the facility were early key deliverables for the project.

GMP Manufacturing Facility

This project featured the complete building remodel of a warehouse into new ISO classified GMP production cleanrooms, a GMP warehouse, including a shipping and receiving area, conference rooms, and offices. The new 3,300 SF GMP manufacturing area was outfitted with new WFI, RO, compressed air and dedicated mechanical equipment. This was a fast-track project and the critical occupant deadline was met.

Solutions Mixing Room

Cannon Building expanded an existing explosion-proof ISO 8 Clean Room and installation of a new fully automated chemical solutions mixing system for a confidential client in the medical device manufacturing industry.

20,000 Gallon USP Purified Water Storage and Distribution System

Named “Project Arrowhead” by the client, this $8.5 million project increased LAP purified water capacity 300 percent, including all cleaning and sanitization operations to meet capacity, remediation and GMP. It included the addition of a 20,000 gallon storage tank and purified loops to support COP and CIP. The system supports LAP capacity to 160mm, cleaning validation and GMP compliance. Subsequently, the project increased makeup water capacity from 30,000 to 100,000 gpd and provided compressed air, steam, condensate, industrial water, and chilled water to various locations.
