Main Pharmacy

Lahey Clinic
Location: Burlington, MA
Size: 6,000 Sq. Ft.
Completion: January 2007

Project Description

The project goal was to upgrade the existing in-patient pharmacy to be in compliance with the new USP 797 standards. A review of the program also indicated that the existing area was insufficient and needed to be increased by 33% to 6,000 square feet. The mandate was to ensure ICRA compliance, and functionality of the pharmacy was not compromised during the upgrade and expansion. Initial studies revealed that the best way to accomplish the goal and maintain operations was through a six phase design and implementation of the areas. Additional complexities were the need for a new HVAC system and the sensitivity of the compounding areas. For this project, we partnered with TCI as an engineering consultant.
