AdvanceTEC begins 155,000 sqft facility for global biotech firm

Published: 1-Nov-2021

The company has invested in BIM/VDC, virtual reality, off-site prefabrication and modularisation for the cGMP project

AdvanceTEC, a cleanroom design, construction specialist and mission-critical process integration expert, has commenced construction for a cutting-edge biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility in the midwest of the US.

This 155,000 sqft facility will include a variety of spaces ranging from ISO Class 7 cleanrooms, Class 8 cleanrooms / CNC (controlled non-classified) cleanrooms, incubators, VHP (vapour hydrogen peroxide) sterilisation, and isolation technologies.

AdvanceTEC’s "Open Market, Zero Compromises" supply chain was a critical attribute of selection

To address capacity upgrades, AdvanceTEC will utilise LEAN construction tools to keep the project on schedule and on budget. As a part of this project, AdvanceTEC is responsible for turnkey design/build of the prefabricated cleanroom as well as process integration requirements.

AdvanceTEC's "Open Market, Zero Compromises" supply chain was a critical attribute of selection when benchmarked against less nimble competitors. In addition to supply chain, a key differentiator for this project is AdvanceTEC's "Cleanroom IP" platform. This platform leverages in-house proprietary technology, that harnesses digital scanning, BIM modelling, laser field layout to deliver a robust prefabrication, preassembly, modularisation, and offsite fabrication (PPMOF)strategy. This platform has been proven to reduce risks, increase safety and quality, as well as enhance site logistics and JIT onsite installation.
