Our client needed a new solid dosage manufacturing facility for clinical supplies. After we conducted a feasibility study, we settled on an existing warehouse as top location. The site was a 30,000 square foot good manufacturing practice warehouse—and we needed to fit processing suites and offices in, while adhering to the owner’s OEB 4 guidelines.
The main floor of the warehouse was converted into 11 processing suites. The suites were constructed and configured with an eye to flexible manufacturing, allowing for multiple pieces of equipment and multiple unit operations in each space. The processing equipment was retrofitted to handle high-potency compounds, minimizing human exposure and contact. And on the second floor, office space accommodates nearly 200 employees.
