Empower Pharmacy is an industry-leading compounding pharmacy and outsourcing facility that delivers innovative pharmaceutical solutions to patients and providers. Integrated Project Services (IPS) awarded Brandt a contract to fabricate and install the ductwork, process piping, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems at the Empower Pharmacy facility in Houston, Texas.
Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) team efficiently built the coordinated model to expedite the fabrication and construction phases. Our fabrication scope included producing 257,000 pounds of rectangular and spiral ductwork. Most ductwork was 18 gauge, but we also had 20-, 22-, and 24-gauge ducts. This duct is connected to five air-handling units designed to provide the plant with 150,000 cubic feet per minute (cfm) of airflow.
Additionally, our team installed specialty process equipment, a large clean room, and standard commercial HVAC, plumbing, and electrical equipment. This fast-paced project mobilized in July 2020 and reached substantial completion in June 2021. During this project, our workforce peaked at nearly 110 skilled workers onsite. This project is one of Brandt’s largest mechanical, electrical, and plumbing projects in Houston.
