    Commissioning, Qualification, and Relocation

    Legal and business drivers resulted in the design, construction, commissioning, qualification and registration of a new manufacturing facility. 

    Project Scope

    • Provide quality and validation resources for the assessment, planning and management of relocation
    • Compile schedules, documentation and vendor service agreements for successful inspection and release of the new facility
    • Project included relocation of operations to a renovated 110,000 sq./ft. office building and a recently constructed 100,000 sq/ft warehouse and manufacturing suite
    • Deliverables included Commissioning and Qualification of Purified Water, Nitrogen, Compressed Air, Cool Room, Warm Room, Controlled Storage Area, Controlled Environment, and Building Monitoring Systems
    • Project was managed with a hard end-date due to commitments to Agency Audits for TGA, BSI, and FDA being scheduled with a 4-month lead time
    • All documentation and qualifications were completed within the respective target dates and presented to inspectors successfully
    • The cross functional team was also responsible for generating all maintenance procedures and support documentation
    • Additional support was provided for Audit Readiness, Protocol Updates and Generation as well as Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action
    • This effort employed over 4000 direct labor hours of support
  • Utility Commissioning Services

    Utility Commissioning Services

    Provide commissioning services for facility and utilities in new commercial production space.

    • Generate user requirement specifications, commissioning documents and turn over packages (TOPs) for modified utilities (plant steam, pure steam, O2, CO2, N2, Compressed Air (CDA), WFI, chilled water, waste, HVAC and Facilities).
    • Reviewed TOPs, field verified all installed utilities, resolved any variations between design and as built conditions, executed commissioning documents and modified URS’s as required.
  • Continuous Manufacturing

    Continuous Manufacturing

    Commissioning and Qualification of all utilities and equipment that convert a traditional batch process to continuous, single-use. Continuous manufacturing reduces waste and decreases footprint (eliminates centrifuges).
