Pinkard provided CM/GC services for Environmental Resource Associates (ERA) office and laboratory build-out in Golden. The project consolidated and expanded ERA's space from their former 27,000 sf facility in Arvada to a 66,000 sf facility in Golden. The completed Golden facility doubles ERA's lab space to 17,000 sf, and provides ERA with 22,000 sf of Class A office space.
The laboratory space includes hazardous material storage, multiple 500+ gallon above ground storage tanks, fume hoods, and services for advanced analytical equipment.
Pinkard assisted the owner in their due diligence at several locations, providing multiple budgets and schedule strategies during ERA's 6 month search for a new location.
To meet the owner's requirement for multiple laboratory gasses, large volume air exchanges, extensive venting and piping, and power requirements, Pinkard worked in a design-build relationship with Heating and Plumbing Engineers (HPE) and Duro Electric.
ERA provides proficiency testing standards and quality control standards for the EPA, municipal treatment and waste facilities, and pharmaceutical industry. ERA's parent company, the Waters Corporation, is a world wide leader in liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry and thermal analysis, and accounts for $5 billion of the overall $20 - $25 billion analytical instrument market.
