ISPE  2016 Annual Meeting and Expo
Atlanta, GA
September 21, 2016  10:30-5:00pm
Shire Georgia Manufacturing Facility Tour

Attendees of ISPE's Annual Meeting and Expo in Atlanta will have an opportunity to tour the Shire Georgia Manufacturing Facility, a state-of-the-art plasma fractionation manufacturing facility that is located east of the city. The facility provides additional capacity for plasma-derived therapies. The integrated campus, which covers more than 1 million square feet, features three manufacturing buildings, a quality control laboratory, ambient warehouse, cold room and freezer storage, administrative offices, a commons area with cafeteria and training rooms, and a central utility building and utilities yard that houses backup generators and an on-site wastewater pretreatment facility.

Flad was selected to plan and design the new campus. Construction began in 2012 and all buildings were completed in early 2016. The facility currently is going through a rigorous commissioning, qualification and validation process, with the goal of receiving licensing from the FDA and international regulatory agencies. Commercial production is expected to begin in 2018.
