Project Profile

This project consisted of the conversion of 250,000 square feet of dermatological production facility into a toothpaste production facility. BCI Construction Inc. completed the construction in a ‘clean room’ environment using a sophisticated phasing approach as to not interfere with daily pharmaceutical production. There was replacement and/or modification of MEP utilities including electrical, plumbing, HVAC, fire protection, special systems, process instrumentation, process piping, and communication services. BCI removed the existing interior slab and installed a new concrete slab on grade to accommodate new equipment loads and underground utilities. There was also an addition of structural steel and an emergency escape stairwell. BCI installed vendor packages for selected process equipment, a powder handling system, a dust control system, and a new conveying system. Once complete, the facility will house six process lines for batch making, six filling lines, a packaging, and a shipping area. GSK will be capable of expanding toothpaste production in the future within the current footprint of the newly renovated facility.
