AdvanceTEC was selected for the project following a highly competitive evaluation process, which highlighted their “intelligent” 3D BIM modeling capabilities, advanced cGMP cleanroom experience, and team approach to the project. AdvanceTEC’s project deliverables include of complete 3D BIM modeling, design and construction, and integration of the cGMP architectural systems, including uPVC walls, walkable panelized ceilings, doors & door operations. AdvanceTEC will also provide full 3D BIM modeling coordination and leadership of the MEP and process trades within the cleanroom and the interstitial space above the cleanroom.
“AdvanceTEC is excited to be initiating work with Pfizer and Jacobs Engineering on this critical investment for Pfizer,” noted Bryan Phelan, AdvanceTEC managing partner and director of sales, marketing and preconstruction services. “We believe in the power of our “intelligent” 3D BIM modeling, the strength of our prior biopharma cGMP cleanroom experience, and the value our open market approach brings to our clients. We listened to Pfizer’s vision for the project, and demonstrated the advantages we could provide to help them achieve their business objectives. Our fully integrated BIM modeling was critical to Pfizer, providing extreme accuracy for this large project that enables precise specification of components, identifies and reconciles potential field conflicts in advance, and maximizes the productivity of project team.”
AdvanceTEC will work as a part of the SVP project team, led by Jacobs Field Service North America.
