When Thompson Consultants, Inc. was established in 1974, our basis for creating a successful business was to develop a practice focusing on highly technical engineering. Today we excel in the design of complex and critical environments. In these spaces, precise environmental conditions require specialized HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing systems. Whether it is an aseptic fill finish line, nanofabrication clean room, bio-safety lab or hybrid operating room (as pictured here), TCI engineers possess the knowledge and expertise to deliver a successful project.
601 Congress Street is a 15-story building in downtown Boston. The building was originally set up as an office building. The scope of work is to convert each floor to support laboratory programming. Also contained in the programming will be a state-of-the-art gym and conference center.
TCI brings both Laboratory and Bio/Pharma expertise in the planning of this space for diversified clients. The challenge of solvent handling and dispensing is being designed with dedicated H3 rated environments providing flexibility for each laboratory. TCI was hired to design all mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection system in addition to any required process engineering systems. The project includes coordination with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation as well as the Federal Aviation Authority.
TCI engineers have an ongoing commitment to advancing healthcare in developing nations. We have active design projects in several countries including Bangladesh, Haiti, Liberia, Malawi and Sierra Leone. As often is the case in developing nations, limited resources require specialized designs which are not only reliable but are highly sustainable in difficult environments.
