Ballard Power: Office and R&D Facility
The research and design facilities were built for new technology, which meant the client had to invent as they went. It was interesting and uniquely challenging; we just had to follow along and adapt during the construction process; detailed schedules and daily communication were key.
The project comprised 2 buildings and 120,000 square feet in total; 50,000 for the office building and 70,000 for the R&D facility. We gained a lot of experience in diverse building management systems; including all HVAC components, internal and external security, lighting, hydrogen gas monitoring and explosion proofing.
QLT is a world leader in the field of light activated pharmaceuticals, the technological nature of their work placed high demands on construction. This project was completed on an accelerated schedule to accommodate QLT’s growth and regulatory commitments at the time.
Nightingale was proud to meet the challenge and produce a high quality product on a tight schedule.
