Parkinson’s Disease Inhalation Device Expansion

Acorda Therapeutics inc. Location: Chelsea, Massachusetts Square Footage: 70,000

CRB completed the full process and facility design for a 40,000-square-foot manufacturing expansion, as well as 25,000 square feet of utility mezzanine and 5,000 square feet for plant utilities. This facility manufactures a spray-dried/capsule-filled product administered through a unique inhalation device.

The product is approved for the intermittent treatment of “off” episodes in people with Parkinson’s disease. An “off” episode is when the patient becomes stiff, slow, unable to move and has difficulty speaking. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, more than 10 million people are living with Parkinson’s disease, and nearly 60,000 Americans are diagnosed each year.   

CRB is proud to partner with Acorda Therapeutics and support its mission to develop therapies that restore function and improve the lives of people with neurological disorders.

"The client Acorda Therapeutics and design team CRB have been terrific to work with and as a collective team we're excited to be a part of a project which will improve the lives of people living with Parkinson's disease." Darrin Ball, Project Executive at Skanska USA Building Inc.
