Understanding a Life Science Conversion

The life science industry is responsible for creating products that promote and improve the general public's well-being. Industries like pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and food processing make up the kinds of facilities that may require lab or office conversions.

Unlike typical commercial construction projects, life science conversions have unique safety and sanitation requirements and must follow strict standards. These buildings must comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, meet specific lab requirements, and follow mandates set by governmental and environmental agencies.

Life science builders must often foresee various obstacles and swiftly provide solutions. These builds are all about constructing areas that meet strict standards while fitting the space and meeting the team's specific needs. Life science conversions encompass an assortment of building components that may include:

  • Specialized infrastructure
  • HVAC
  • Climate controls
  • Fireproof systems
  • Backup generator power
  • Chemical storage

At Gidel & Kocal, we have helped many companies and organizations within the life science industry build new or revamp existing spaces. This experience has provided us with the skills to schedule efficiently, offer real-time data reporting, create flexible construction processes, obtain the correct certifications and more — characteristics necessary for a trusted life science builder.
