Millstone Medical Breaks Ground on New Facility

DiPrete Engineering has teamed with RKB Architects, Avid Engineers, Boston Industrial Consulting, John Turner Consulting, and Reflex Lighting to design a new 56,300 square foot freestanding building for Millstone Medical Outsourcing, LLC’s headquarters at Commerce Park in Fall River, MA. Construction Management & Builders, Inc. has been selected to construct the facility.

Millstone Medical has been in business since 2004 and provides the medical device industry with post-manufacturing services including: validation and engineering services, advanced mechanical inspection, ultrasonic cleaning and passivation, clean room packaging, non-sterile packaging and comprehensive warehousing.

The company’s new building will be located on the last vacant parcel of Commerce Park, adjacent to the existing facility. The vision for the site is to create a campus feel by designing vehicular and pedestrian access between the existing headquarters and the new building. The site plan features a 48,000 square foot building footprint with an 8,300 square foot mezzanine, five loading docks, 99 parking spaces, motorcycle parking, bicycle racks, vehicle charging stations, abundant landscaping, and an outdoor patio area for employees.

DiPrete Engineering’s scope of work included ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey, land planning, site/civil engineering including stormwater management and utility design, and obtaining approvals through the Fall River Redevelopment Authority and Site Plan Review Committee.
