Project Overview

After Ryan utilized its design-build approach to meet a variety of complex, technical needs for Upsher-Smith’s previous pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, we were brought back for another key project: their corporate headquarters. The facility is a state-of-the-art office, laboratory and warehouse that incorporates the latest technology and building techniques.

Upsher-Smith had very specific design requirements, complete with extensive FDA guidelines, so they required a design-builder who could understand the plan and then carry it out to the letter. Construction activities included the incorporation of specialized dust and particle filters; workstations with deionized water, compressed air and vacuum systems; sealed floors; and epoxy coated walls and ceilings—all built for optimum cleanliness and environmental control.

What our customers are saying

  • The whole experience with Ryan was fantastic. They designed exactly what we needed and they built exactly what was designed. When we made a request, they evaluated it and developed options. I was extremely satisfied with the process and I am equally as satisfied with the outcome.
