Murray Company completed the Process, WFI, Pure Steam, CIP, process, process utilities and process waste systems in Building 8 for this pharmaceutical plant. 

This project was a challenging pharmaceutical scope of work with an accelerated schedule and several design revisions as construction was proceeding. The project was bid out lump sum with incomplete plans because the owner needed additional production in a short period of time.  Murray Company met with the general contractor, the owner, and the design engineers on a weekly basis to address issues that may have potentially held up fabrication and construction. The team’s effort to address design issues as construction proceeded led to a successful project.
