The $5.2-million project on Table Mountain Parkway in Golden consolidates and expands upon ERA’s former 27,000-sq-ft facility in Arvada. ERA provides proficiency-testing standards and quality-control standards for the EPA, municipal treatment and waste facilities, and the pharmaceutical industry. ERA’s parent company, the Waters Corp., is a worldwide leader in liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry and thermal analysis, and accounts for $1.8 billion of the overall $20 - $25 billion analytical instrument market.

ERA’s new space includes 17,000-sq-ft of wet laboratory space and 22,000-sq-ft of Class A office space. The lab space includes hazardous material storage, fume hoods and services for advanced analytical equipment. Multiple 500-plus-gal., aboveground storage tanks deliver ultra-pure, de-ionized water to the facility via polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) thermoplastic piping.
During ERA’s six-month search for its new location, Pinkard provided due-diligence assistance with multiple budgets and schedule strategies.

As an out of state owner, the Waters Corporation relied heavily upon Pinkard’s knowledge of the local subcontractor and engineering market. To meet the owner’s requirement for multiple laboratory gasses, large-volume air exchanges, extensive venting and piping, and power requirements, Pinkard worked in a design-build  relationship with Heating and Plumbing Engineers and Duro Electric.
