POLYCLAD - COOKSON ELECTRONICS
Mix Room Project
Franklin, New Hampshire
The Turner Group served as architects, engineers, and project managers for the design and construction administration of this H5 and H2 high hazard industrial project. Egress evaluations and fire protection engineering were the most critical life safety design aspects of this building addition to Polyclad-Cookson Electronics fiberglass and plastics manufacturing and assembly facility. Primarily manufacturers of base components for computer backplanes, this project included the designs for the handling and dispensing of potentially explosive peroxide chemical powders.
Design features included damage-limiting construction with the tethered blast panel walls, explosion proof electrical, and mechanical systems, internal trenches and pits, and underslab weigh scale, all within the confines of a very tight site.
Construction administration included periodic site observations, weekly meetings, contractor oversight, coordination with Owners and representatives, review of submittals, and approval of applications for payment.
