New Sterile Device Facility

MEDRAD, INC Location: Saxonburg, Pennsylvania Square Footage: 120,000 Construction Cost: $33,000,000

Project Description: 

MEDRAD is a worldwide market leader of medical devices and services that enable or enhance diagnostic and therapeutic imaging procedures. Their products include vascular injection systems for diagnostic and interventional procedures, CT injection systems, magnetic resonance systems, syringes and disposable systems.

To meet their ever increasing demand for sterile disposable products, MEDRAD contracted CRB perform conceptual and detailed design services, commissioning and LEED support services for MEDRAD's Greenfield sterile device facility located in Saxonburg, PA.

This facility houses automated and semi-automated syringe and sterile component assembly lines. Additional areas include warehouse, production support space (ISO 8 cleanroom), quality control, and administrative support.

The project was completed in 14 months from kickoff to validated facility producing commercial product.

To meet the aggressive schedule and reduce costs, a pre-engineered building was used for the facility shell. CRB prepared detailed P&ID's for all mechanical systems and utilized 3D modeling for all mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.

The project included all new central utilities, including: substation, 750 KW generator, 100 BHP boilers, 350 ton chillers and 1500 CFM air compressors, as well as cleanroom HVAC with 12 AHU's.

CRB created, organized and managed a project website for the project team. This website included all project activities including correspondence, RFI's, drawing postings, etc.

As a company devoted to contributing to human health, MEDRAD emphasized that sustainable design was an important part of the project from the outset of the conceptual design phase through construction and occupancy. The project incorporates a number of strategies that contribute to significant environmental benefits over a conventional medical device manufacturing facility.
