Sanofi DP Lab Completion

A/Z was engaged by Sanofi to renovate an active, regulated research and manufacturing facility on its Framingham, MA campus. As its construction manager, A/Z was tasked with transforming existing lab space into a state-of-the-art drug product (DP) research lab—while preserving the safety of building occupants, operational continuity, and the integrity of regulated spaces.

The 3,350 SF lab and storage area was repurposed to accommodate the following DP research operations: raw material storage, equipment and parts preparation, formulation, material cart transfer, vial filling the primary containers, stoppering the primary containers, lyophilization, and capping and crimping the lyophilized loads.

These new operations required comprehensive MEP upgrades within the space. A new segregated HVAC system was installed as well as new normal and standby power, lighting, fire alarm, and low-voltage systems. Modifications to validated systems within the space (CA, RODI, and clean steam) were successfully executed through detailed quality protocols.
