Gene Therapy Manufacturing Facility Design + CM

Gene Therapy Manufacturing Facility Design + CM

Catalent Biologics (formerly Paragon Bioservices Inc.), a contract development and manufacturing organization located in downtown Baltimore, experienced considerable growth due to increased client demand for its expertise in gene therapy and vaccines manufacturing. This growth led the company to expand into a newly constructed building located in nearby Harmans, Maryland.

The new building provided Catalent Biologics with a unique opportunity to quickly design, construct and qualify a new Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) commercial manufacturing facility while also providing the necessary space to grow CGMP warehouse, administrative, laboratory and support functions.

In response to its clients’ needs, Catalent Biologics required this fully flexible manufacturing facility and associated spaces to be constructed in less than 12 months from project initiation. Working closely with CRB, the team was able to design and construct a multiproduct, multiprocess facility predicated on maximum flexibility and adaptability while prioritizing segregation between manufacturing suites to maintain a low risk of any cross-contamination and protecting client confidentiality. This partnership amongst all the team members successfully executed integrated project delivery with an aggressive timeline to improve the speed to market.
