CGMP Warehouse Design + Construction

Novartis Location: Holly Springs, North Carolina Square Footage: 65,000 Construction Cost: $30,000,000

Project Description:

CRB provided design and construction management services for the 65,000 sq. ft. CGMP Warehouse portion of an integrated Manufacturing/Fill Finish/Admin/Lab Greenfield facility. The CRB Team was challenged to design and construct the warehouse on an aggressive schedule. 

CRB produced several early construction packages to facilitate permitting and early site preparation to maintain schedule compliance.

Also as part of this projects' challenge, the north and northeast corner of the warehouse were integral with the adjoining fill finish and fac ops buildings. Close coordination with the CM Team of these adjacent buildings was required for the overall success of the project. The warehouse served initially as the receiving and staging point for the manufacturing and fill finish equipment and supported the overall site commissioning and validation effort.

The CRB design and construction management team worked closely during the Construction Period Service phase of this project. Engineers maintained a weekly presence on site to facilitate RFIs and other design clarifications. The warehouse scope included narrow aisle ambient and GMP cold room storage, hazardous storage, shipping/receiving, waste storage, hazardous waste storage, pallet washing, pallet storage, QA labs, stability chambers and offices. The utility, security and safety systems were site wide and required coordination with other site AEs.
