Chemical R + D Facility

Torcan Chemical Ltd.

NXL’s first mandate with Torcan Chemical Ltd was to develop a 110,000 sf 10 year masterplan for Torcan’s existing Aurora, ON site. NXL worked with Torcan to implement phase 1 and 2 of the masterplan. Phase 1 added 11,000 sf of laboratories, laboratory support space, and a mechanical penthouse. This project included four new segregated labs with six fumehood workstations, a bank of walk-in fumehoods, segregated write-up areas, solvent storage, and extensive safety systems. Phase 2 began five years later and included 9,500 sf of kilo labs, a 7,000 sf administrative expansion and upgrades to mechanical and electrical services throughout the facility.
