PK BLENDING SUITE

LOCATION: NEW YORK

CLIENT: PHARMACEUTICAL

MARKET SECTOR: SCI-TECH 

SIZE: 5,000 SF



THE OPPORTUNITY

A pharmaceutical client in New York was looking to renovate a 5,000 sf manufacturing suite.

 

THE CHALLENGE

The main challenge was avoiding the disruption of existing manufacturing operations while the renovation took place.

 

THE PS&S SOLUTION

PS&S furnished architectural and engineering services for the renovation of a PK blending suite for a manufacturing plant in Brooklyn, New York.  The project consisted of new architectural and cGMP upgrades to the three-story-high manufacturing suite including new material transfer and personnel gowning airlocks, new ceilings and floor finishes and the installation of clean utility panels to meet cGMP and MCA requirements for the facility which contained level 3 compounds. 

New process improvements included a new drum pack-out station and modifications to the control system for the existing PK blender.  Other improvements to the suite included new HVAC supply and exhaust fans to maintain the pressurization controls within the facility.  PS&S also provided validation services for the new process equipment.  

The project was constructed in multiple phases in order to maintain manufacturing operations within the suite and within the building.  PS&S provided full time on-site construction support services and coordinated construction phase activities with the client’s users and engineering staff throughout the six-month construction period.
