DPM provided innoPad with support throughout the site selection, due diligence and lease evaluation phases to ensure its new 28,220-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility at 265 Ballardvale Street in Wilmington, MA would meet its growth and production needs.  This included the engagement of the design and construction teams, along with other specialty consultants, evaluation of cost estimates and review of all programming, design and construction documents.  Upon site selection, DPM provided project oversight and controls including design management, comprehensive construction administration, FF&E procurement and move planning services.  The space which consisted of 3,720 square feet of refurbished office and 24,500 square feet of production space, a 2,200 square-foot, class 10K clean room as well as a state-of-the-art reverse osmosis (RODI) water system.  These elements, combined with the use of swing-space to address a phased relocation schedule, presented a unique set of challenges managed successfully by DPM through detailed planning and collaboration with all members of the project team.  The result was the minimization of production downtime through the shutdown of the existing facility and the start up of the new facility in less than 2 weeks.
