XL Construction built a new 2-story, 78,250 s.f. clinical supply center to support maintenance of this biotech leader’s robust clinical treatment pipeline. This state-of-the-art, single-use-technology manufacturing building is key to the client’s evolving 207-acre headquarters campus and designed to meet new demands in pharmaceutical research and development. Being this client’s first project to fully leverage lean, XL, the client, and partners began early collaboration in in-person and virtual big room environments. Using a Target Value Delivery approach, the team identified key project drivers and leveraged small “swat teams” who continuously identified opportunities to effectively manage project costs, schedule, and other key concerns. Operating with lean methodology and behaviors, XL successfully completed this cutting-edge production facility, hitting budget and schedule targets despite a two-month shut down due to COVID-19 and additional delays due to local fires.

Hi All, I just wanted to recognize Geoff and Bobby for their contribution and specifically making the BAS successful. We have not had much success (from what I hear) on BAS delivery in the recent past. Both Geoff and Bobby were quick to escalate concerns to me back in Q1, what was important is that they escalated with ideas about how to turn the project around in this area. They have shown, with correct leadership, technical skills, and building the right relationship with Siemens they were able to deliver this system nearly flawlessly.

Bobby, Thanks for making this project a success, all the GNE team says that they found your effort valuable and the project was well supported. I would like to say that XL as a team did a good job on managing all the MEP/Startup Scopes. The efforts to support Siemens BAS was especially a challenging area and you and the team were instrumental in that effort being successful.

Senior Project Manager, Genentech

Transforming this facility from vision to reality during the global pandemic required tremendous creativity and dedication from our diverse team. We are thrilled to be recognized as the 2023 FOYA overall winner for our work bringing the next generation of innovative new medicines to patients.
