Arranta Bio MA, LLC is an emerging CDMO company created to manufacture drug product affiliated with the microbiome. DCBA was hired as the construction and design manager for the duration of the project. The client purchased an existing 60,000SF building to transform into lab and manufacturing space. DCBA is managing the gutting and installation of cGMP clean room manufacturing space, cGMP warehouse, R&D Labs, QC Labs, office space, and site improvements. Additionally, an adjacent office building will be constructed to house the company’s headquarters.
Challenges for this project include an aggressive schedule, commencement of construction in parallel with design, and value engineering.
This project was a transformation of an old mixed-use building into an all-encompassing service facility for collector, vintage and exotic cars. The facility has a fully heated, cooled and humidity-controlled space equipped with commercial-grade car lifts and the latest security technologies that provide 24/7 camera surveillance and keycard access. DCBA’s project team had to evaluate and coordinate design options for the architectural, structural and civil design of the building as well as the fire protection, HVAC and plumbing engineering systems. These updates were necessary in order to meet both current building codes/regulations and client’s current/future needs. As a design-build project, this undertaking required a lot of coordination and communication between DCBA staff and more than a dozen of carefully selected subcontractors to ensure the safe and successful delivery of this project.
