Jazz Pharmaceutical’s Athlone facility has been named as the winner of the Project Execution category by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (IPSE) in its 2017 Facility of the Year Awards (FOYA).

Ardmac are delighted to have been a key participant working with Jazz in such an innovative and award winning project. Ardmac delivered the design, supply and installation of the Grade C Cleanrooms for Jazz’s new GMP facility.

This premier global awards program recognises innovation and creativity in manufacturing facilities serving the regulated healthcare industry. Projects selected for the FOYA program set the standard for pharmaceutical facilities of the future by demonstrating excellence in facility design, construction, and operations.

Jazz Pharmaceuticals were awarded the Project Execution Category Award for its creation and delivery of a greenfield manufacturing facility in Ireland. Remarkably, this is Jazz’s first manufacturing facility, having had no prior experience internally on building or operating a manufacturing facility, as it had previously outsourced manufacturing production. The project team completed within an aggressive time schedule and under budget.

Jazz’s approach was highlighted as “highly pragmatic, and a model for lean project execution and integration of the investment from “project” phase to licensed GMP operations.”
