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.
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.
