Clinical Supply Center
XL Construction built a new 2-story, 78,250 s.f. clinical supply center using lean tools, such as target value delivery, to manage design decision impacts.
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.
