How Environmental Specialties Built the largest Influenza Vaccine Storage during COVID-19 lockdown, on time and on budget?

Environmental Specialties built a more than 12,000-square-foot storage solution for a global manufacturer, during COVID-19 lockdown, on time and on budget.

For this confidential vaccine manufacturer, Environmental Specialties, LLC performed architectural, engineering, fabrication, installation, calibration, and training services required to provide the client what may be the largest vaccine cold storage facility in the world.

Client Expectations During COVID-19

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Environmental Specialties successfully surpassed the client’s performance expectations by achieving a remarkable temperature uniformity of ±1.5 degrees Celsius—well below the specified ±3.0 degrees Celsius. Our cutting-edge solution ensures consistent air distribution and offers 100% mechanical redundancy through independent control logic and sequencing, safeguarding inventory integrity during potential power failures.

Meeting Rising Vaccine Demand with Advanced Storage Solutions

Facing a surge in production and the critical need for vaccine storage for global distribution, our client sought a robust solution. Environmental Specialties responded by constructing an expansive 12,000-square-foot facility (equivalent to approximately 700,000 cubic feet)—a towering structure comparable to a 4-story building. This facility incorporates:

  • Comprehensive architectural and engineering design for optimal cold storage functionality.
  • A full drawing package detailing layout and specifications.
  • Precise selection and positioning of essential equipment and utilities.
  • Procurement of top-tier architectural, mechanical, electrical, and control hardware.
  • Fabrication and integration of four redundant refrigeration skids, ensuring uninterrupted performance.
  • High-level suspension of eight unit coolers, positioned 55 feet above the chamber floor.
  • Assembly and setup of three NEMA 4-rated control panels for enhanced safety and control.
  • Extensive pipe installation spanning over 4,200 feet.
  • Expert project management, site supervision, and meticulous startup, testing, and calibration procedures.
  • Comprehensive owner training on equipment operation and control systems.
  • Robust warranty service and provision of spare parts for sustained performance.

Leading the Way in Influenza Vaccine Storage

This state-of-the-art facility stands as one of the largest flu vaccine storage infrastructures nationwide, setting new benchmarks for efficiency, reliability, and scalability in vaccine storage solutions.
