Plus Groups’ Process Plus provided all design services for this new potent pharmaceutical packaging facility, including architectural design, building engineering, packaging engineering, and procurement services. The project phases started in the definition of User Requirements and programming through construction support.
The client had multi-site stakeholders and had not taken on a new plant design before Process Plus walked them through a programming phase, resulting in rethinking process adjacencies that improved their existing & new facility’s production flow. The deadline-driven project created an opportunity to implement an expedited phased approach to complete the programming phase and preliminary design before site selection. Additionally, Process Plus worked with the client to evaluate different construction delivery methods. A two-month Value Engineering phase resulted in savings of 20% with evaluation of Materials of Construction, SF, Building elevations, mechanical & electrical savings. The success was due to bringing the Construction Manager on as part of the design team and providing updated estimates to track the budget. Project Management was vital on this project. Process Plus followed budget and schedule from the onset through the building groundbreaking ceremony transitioning from engineering through the owner’s representative during construction. Though this project started in 2011 with groundbreaking in 2013, we continue to support this client in their engineering needs throughout their granulation and packaging areas..
