Griffin Electric Completes Cleanroom Project

Thermo Fisher Scientific cleanroom

Lexington, MA – Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. has completed the electrical installation work at Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.’s new cleanroom facility in Lexington. 

Serving as the project’s general contractor was Skanska USA Building, Inc. of Boston, working directly with architectural and electrical engineering firm, DPS Engineering of Framingham.

The 50,000sf facility was renovated to accommodate the development, testing and manufacturing of viral vectors in order to treat patients suffering from rare diseases.  The in-house scientists, QC specialists and production teams are using GMP practices in the company’s state-of-the-art lab space to accelerate the production of new drug therapies.

On-site, the Griffin Electric team was responsible for providing temporary power during construction of the cleanroom. In addition to powering the facility, Griffin supplied lighting services, including fixtures and controls, as well as set up the wiring for the tele/data systems. The team also installed additional systems for fire alarm, clock, lightning protection and security within the facility.
