A large pharmaceutical company planned a new construction finished drug product distribution warehouse located in Indianapolis. The project included controlled room temperature (CRT) storage, refrigerated storage, and freezer storage for products as well as an attached administrative office area. The project was part of a pilot project delivery method and involved adapting an industry standard warehouse HVAC design to meet the requirements for drug product storage.
As one of many of Performance Validation’s pharma building commissioning projects, PV was able to leverage knowledge and experience from previous projects and work with the design-build contractors to deliver a complete commissioning solution for the facility. Temperature mapping was implemented to analyze temperature distribution throughout product storage areas and identify areas for improvement prior to completion of construction. On-site audit support was also provided during two mock audits to assess operational readiness prior to going live.
The end result was a facility that was verified and documented to be installed and function per design/construction specifications. The new distribution warehouse was able to efficiently meet the temperature requirements for drug product storage. Temperature mapping data was used to design a redundant environmental monitoring system that was qualified for constant monitoring of critical temperatures.
The project accomplished the following for the distribution warehouse:
