Case Studies

Gilead Pharmaceuticals Edmonton West Campus 1 And 2 ($7. 2m Laboratory FF&E Budget)

This bold and modern laboratory facility was designed for Gilead ULC, an organization who develops and manufactures investigational drugs and supplies ingredients for clinical research programs. The clients presented unique requirements that required over 200 custom fume hoods and 1000LM of casegoods including pre-built modular island chases with pre-installed electrical, gas and drainage services ready for termination at building connection points.

Collaboration with Consultant team:

Design-Assist Manager Tyler Holmberg was included in the project design team from the initial stages of schematic design through 100% design and product delivery. Tyler directly led the user interviews and design meetings to evaluate and test materials, create typical and custom product assemblies, laboratory modules and fume hood requirements. Results were then reviewed with the Architect and CM before the Norlab design team created the Laboratory specifications and drawings. 


Designed custom plug and play island service chases, including pre-piped gas services to ball valves, electrical services to junction boxes. Chase was factory CSA approved and pressure tested for use according to project specifications and local codes. Custom fume hoods and sample storage cabinets to meet user requirements.
