Project Highlights

High School, New York – Represented general contractor for analysis of electrical subcontractor’s claim for constructive acceleration totaling $5.6 million on the renovation of six existing floors of a school, and construction of an additional seventh floor. Evaluated the subcontractor’s total cost analysis, including detailed review of project bid documents, pay requisitions, certified payroll and Primavera P6 schedules. Issues included design changes, schedule re-sequencing, interference by other trades and delay by other trades which ultimately resulted in schedule compression. Developed alternative measured mile analysis for loss of productivity in contrast with subcontractor’s total cost analysis. Assisted in development of expert report of findings for mediation.

Mallinckrodt, St. Louis, MO – Design of a multi-level API production expansion featuring reactors, crystallizers, centrifuges, bulk packaging, and solvent recovery.

Gilead Sciences, La Verne, CA – Development of a 23 acre greenfield pharmaceutical manufacturing site including buildings for sterile manufacturing, packaging, central utility plant, warehouse, and office/laboratory.

Neutrogena, Los Angeles, CA – Major upgrade of a manufacturing facility including warehousing, compounding packaging, utilities and other infrastructure for a wide range of personal products.

Bristol-Myers Squibb, Devens, MA – Design of a new Cell Bank manufacturing area as well as a new dedicated bulk liquid nitrogen storage and distribution system.

GlaxoSmithKline, Mississauga, ON – Retrofit of an existing building to add a new manufacturing line including bulk unloading through mixing and filling / packaging of a Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory drug product as an ointment.

Boehringer Ingelheim, Ridgefield, CT – Design to replace and improve the heat transfer systems serving an existing kilo laboratory.  The new systems will be able of achieving temperatures from -60°C to 160°C.

AbbVie, N. Chicago, IL – Retrofit of an existing facility to add a GMP clinical API manufacturing suite to enable small scale manufacturing of highly potent small molecules with a <1 µg/m3 containment level.
