Biotech and Manufacturing


This 80,000 ft2 pharmaceutical manufacturing facility included laboratory, manufacturing, packaging, and warehouse space. In the concept phase, a future addition was considered in the design and conceptual details. For final construction documents, special equipment support details were incorporated.*

Elan Gowning Facility

This manufacturing facility upgrade included gowning facilities, lab space, clean rooms, a new mechanical platform, and design of a walkable ceiling. This project was located in the center of the existing structure, requiring special planning to maintain operations in other portions of the building.
