Controlled Environments

We carefully engineer spaces and rooms as needed to control environmental factors.
Experience Progressive Companies

Dust. Particulate. Temperature. Humidity. These are things we might not consider in our daily lives — unless you work in healthcare, aerospace, manufacturing, or one of many other highly technical specialties. These jobs involve working in rooms free from foreign components that could damage sensitive equipment and samples. That’s where controlled spaces come in.

Progressive Companies’ engineers have helped a broad variety of special science, learning, and manufacturing organizations meet close environmental control needs. From laboratory and manufacturing to pharmaceutical and medical to high technology and aerospace, we have delivered controlled spaces capable of meeting almost any need. Our team can design to any standard of certification or ISO level/EU Grade of compliance, and we are well-versed in designing to cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) standards.

Healthcare & Pharmaceutical

We are experienced in working with medical product manufacturers for both pharmaceutical and medical product programs. Our team collaborates with clients in navigating legal and regulatory mandates and creatively developing opportunities to improve efficiency, productivity, and safety. Some of our projects include:

  • Compounding pharmacies designed to stringent USP 797 and USP 800 standards
  • Medical device manufacturing cleanrooms
  • Medical filing cleanrooms for the production of medicine, test kits, etc.
  • Containment/biocontainment cleanrooms

Aerospace & Defense

Progressive Companies is experienced in collaborating with defense contractors and aerospace clients to develop controlled spaces for optics applications, military-grade wearables, and even space programs.

Automobiles & Electronics

Manufacturing delicate electronics and components requires a tightly controlled environment. Our engineers are experienced in designing controlled spaces for these industries, such as fuel cell manufacturing in the automobile industry and semiconductor fabrication facilities.  

Over 150,000 SF of cleanrooms

Other Specialties

Our clients often need specialized solutions for their industry needs in conjunction with their cleanrooms. Other knowledge and expertise we bring to the table include:

  • Dry Rooms – For processes (like glass manufacturing) that require the cleanroom to have low relative humidity.
  • Contained Cleanrooms – For protecting the adjacent environment of the cleanroom. These applications require complex pressurization control strategies.
  • Cold Storage – Especially in the pharmaceutical industry, clients may need to keep vials or syringes stored at the proper temperatures.

Cleanroom Remediation – If a previously built cleanroom is not working properly, we can investigate and propose remediation to bring it up to standards.
