The Project

ICO provided comprehensive Commissioning Services for the build-out of 160,000 square feet of new cleanroom environments and 200,000 square feet of office, cafeteria, and laboratory space within ABIOMED’s Danvers campus. Physical equipment included heating hot water boiler plants, rooftop units, humidification and dehumidification systems. ICO’s focus was on understanding and executing the design concept by reviewing applicable submittals, inspecting the work performed by contractors, and commissioning the project to ensure all systems were integrated and operating as intended—including 100% of the critical HVAC equipment. ICO also performed witness testing of selected electrical equipment to ensure proper function under emergency and loss-of-power conditions.
