BE&K Building Group has topped out on its Curia expansion project.

Curia is large pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organisation.

The large-scale expansion is taking place in Albuquerque, NM.

The two companies held a ceremony to mark the successful completion of the steel erection, slightly ahead of schedule.

The large-scale project encompasses a new 68,000 sqft multi-story steel structure addition and fit-up to Curia’s existing manufacturing facility, focused on expanding services in three main areas.

The first will significantly expand manufacturing capabilities with new BSL-2 formulation and filling capacity.

The second adds vial packaging and inspection, including a large expanded -80°C (-112°F) freezer storage area.

The third provides a redesigned façade and entryway, offering secure access and visitor amenities without impacting adjacent ongoing operations.

The event was well-attended by trade contractors and many Curia personnel, including individuals from various project management roles and from their existing facility.
