Sartorius Campus Expansion: Under Construction

Sartorius Stedim Filters FMT and Campus Expansion
The new Fluid Management Technologies (FMT) manufacturing facility is an expansion of the Sartorius Stedim Filters 48,000 sf distribution center and 55,000 sf ECO Fluid Technologies (FT) Clean Room manufacturing facilities. The new FMT facility will manufacture customized fluid management system solutions for the pharmaceutical-biotechnical industry. The facility includes two 30,000 sf ISO Class 7 cleanroom manufacturing areas, a 50,000 sf Warehouse, offices, laboratories, corporate conference and training area, and employee lunch facilities.
The project is part of a 40 acre campus expansion that includes campus infrastructure, a 540 car employee parking area that uses open grid paving, and an 80,000 sf FT Membrane Casting manufacturing facility. The Membrane Casting building and systems are designed to meet all LEED standards, however, its manufacturing process loads preclude it from complying with ASHRAE 90.1 minimum energy performance standards.

Area: Overall Site Addition: 40 Acres
FMT Facility - 230,000 square feet
FT Membrane Casting – 80,000 square feet
Budget: Withheld by Owner
Completion date: May 2018
General Contractor: CIC Construction, Inc.
MEP Sub-Contractor: BLDM
Services provided: Design, construction & permit documents; construction phase services; LEED design and construction strategies; commissioning and energy modeling services.
Projected energy and environmental design strategy metrics: Low-impact urban site design; 78% potable water savings; 35% less energy consumption following ASHRAE 90.1 2007 guidelines; 80% construction debris waste diverted; Measurement and Verification plan for energy and water; designed to integrate a 1 Mw solar photovoltaic system; Interior Environmental Quality focus: ASHRAE ventilation and thermal control; interior air quality management during construction; low-emitting interior and exterior finish materials and modular furnishings.

Key Achievements
• The energy efficiency and water conservation strategies integrated into the FMT project's design will save Sartorius Stedim an estimated $650,000 per year.
• The project is designed to achieve a LEED-NC v3 Gold certification and is an extension of the first Pharma-Bio Clean Room Manufacturing facility to acquire LEED Platinum certification.
• The building electrical system is designed to integrate a 1 Mw solar photovoltaic system that will provide approximately 35% of the facilities electrical demand, decrease energy consumption from ASHRAE baseline by 58% and will save an additional $380,000 per year.
