Pharmaceutical Manufacturer Laboratory/Building Decontamination

Groton, Connecticut

Services: Facility Services
Client Served: Industrial

The project consisted of supporting our client with Hazwoper trained personnel to support the decontamination of various scientific laboratories in multiple buildings for a pharmaceutical manufacturer. The buildings were being decontaminated to prepare for demolition.

The Loureiro team worked with instruction directly from the pharmaceutical EH&S group. The team performed the following tasks: lab disinfection, removal and decontamination of mercury contaminated sink traps, managing waste water from the building to the on-site waste water treatment facility, removal of Universal Waste (fluorescent lights, batteries, electronic devices, etc…), removal of lab chemistry, pipe cleaning and removal, tank cleaning and removal, elevator shaft decontamination, glycol removal from refrigeration units, and various emergency responses throughout working/cleaning up after other trades also working in the building.


  • Large crews at times up to 10 technicians
  • Management of the cleanup per pharma reps
  • Solid work led to other buildings ready for decon
