UW HEALTH CARE DIRECT

Renovation & Addition

Our client was selected by UW Health Care Direct (formerly Chartwell Midwest Wisconsin) to convert an existing two story, secondary education building to their new company headquarters. Renovations to the site, building envelope and exterior cladding, as well as attractive interior renovations helped repurpose the existing portion of the building, creating offices, conference rooms, break rooms, lounges, training rooms, and bays for infusion services. The addition we constructed allowed Chartwell to improve their overall workflow by adding new cleanroom facilities to replace their outdated labs and equipment, meeting current standards for sterile compounding by pharmacies and providing needed space for future growth. Also included in the addition was loading docks, a shipping/receiving area, and a large warehouse for storing pharmaceutical contents and supplies. A cleanroom protocol program was implemented during this project which all Kraemer Brothers employees and subcontractors were required to follow, including always wearing booties and gown attire in the pharmacy and cleanroom. The facility now has state-of-the-art equipment to monitor airflow, temperature, and humidity, along with technology such as cameras in each clean room allowing observation of pharmacy technician work.
