I recently was invited to participate in a project that included a number of unique challenges. This project had to be completed on a tight timeline. The timeline in conjunction with its sophistication and special requirements was causing my customer a great deal of concern. The project was to create a series of quality control testing rooms for a major plastics and resin manufacturer with a plant in mid-Michigan. Each room contained laboratory custom cabinetry and state-of-the-art electronics. After a visiting with the customer to review site conditions and to discuss the details of the control room we were able to start the process of defining the scope of work that we would be offering in our bid.
The customer was high on the idea of utilizing modular construction because they had already seen the speed at which the product could be installed in a series of previous projects. As a result they selected Porta-King to make these rooms for this current project. The ultimate use for the labs would be to do quality control checks of plastics and resins. The labs were necessary to control dust, humidity and temperature at acceptable levels while tests were conducted. We had to have a special window and sill height because the top of the wire mold had to fall even with the sill height. We did this to accommodate all of the special electronic equipment that the customer had going into these rooms. The customer ordered six quality control labs and was very pleased with not only the quality of the material but with the ease of installation in such a complicated industrial environment.
