Project Overview

Not all stories follow a straight path from beginning to end. In the case of Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI), we had to follow several parallel paths to help the medical device manufacturer get their facility up and running quickly.

Their sophisticated two-story building includes R&D laboratories, testing areas and office spaces as well as cleanrooms that required a very lengthy certification process before manufacturing could begin. To maintain a quick timeline to completion of the building, we coordinated the construction in a unique way, putting the center of the building on an extreme fast track. That portion—containing the cleanrooms—was completed first, allowing CSI to bring in equipment and start the certification process before the rest of the facility was completed.

Maintaining efficiency while working with this unique, multi-phase timeline required intricate coordination and careful attention to safety. In addition, because the site was once used for dumping, the Ryan Companies team had to mitigate methane gas and use the Geopier System to reinforce the loose, sandy soil. In the end, CSI was able to begin their critical manufacturing work without delay.

What our customers are saying

  • Ryan always puts its customers’ needs first. In our view they clearly separate themselves from the competition with their fully integrated team, proven experience and the humility with which they go about their business.
