As disruptive technologies become more prominent in the industry drug programs need to react with speed and flexibility to maintain a foot hold in the market place. Over time GMP manufacturing projects have continued to reduce in duration, with the current duration averaging 3 - 4 years from concept to operation. To be first to market in a competitive environment BioMarin successfully completed this same effort in 54 weeks, this, all while facing technical challenges typical of scale up, gene therapy design considerations, fill finish technologies, coupled with strict local and federal regulations and the worst winter in the bay area in 10 + years.

The project has received an award for project execution from ISPE and is a current contender for the 2018 project of the year award.

BioMarin develops and commercializes innovative biopharmaceuticals for serious diseases and medical conditions with focus on rare (orphan) genetic diseases.

Join us in learning how BioMarin, partnered with CRB engineers and Novo construction made the impossible project a reality without compromising on quality, schedule or cost.
