We offer full design-build services. Over the past 20 years, we’ve developed a method enabling us to be one of the fastest and most efficient firms in the industry.
We've worked across a variety of industries including specialty chemicals, coatings, pharmaceuticals, energy storage, cellulosic ethanol, solar panels, biopharmaceuticals, nanotechnology, and microelectronics.
We've scaled up many of these technologies from a lab scale to pilot through commercialization.
SPEC caters to a wide range of clients. Our unique approach to process engineering has helped in hundreds of large-scale installations in such industries as specialty chemicals, coatings, pharmaceuticals, energy storage, cellulosic ethanol, and more.
The SPEC approach is a modified design/build model, correcting the deficiencies in a typical design/build project as practiced by others in the construction industry.
SPEC staffs, in-house, all the disciplines necessary to seamlessly execute all our design/build projects, including: process, electrical, and mechanical engineers; industrial architects; construction/project managers; and controls engineers.
SPEC began working with the client to provide the conceptual design necessary to prepare a preliminary Establishment License Application (ELA) for submission to the FDA for preliminary review. After FDA review, SPEC proceeded to develop a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) package, which included the total scope of work, project budget, project schedule and performance based contract for the project.
SPEC successfully designed, constructed and commissioned a 30,000 square-foot Pilot-Scale manufacturing facility including a vivarium, class 10,000 autologous processing suite, specialized infectious disease laboratories, and utility space
Due to the fast track nature of this project, SPEC accelerated the procurement phase by pre-purchasing major capital equipment items. Subcontractors that were deemed critical to the success of the project were prequalified and the bid packages were expedited to insure that schedule was met. During the start up phase of the project, SPEC process & controls engineers commissioned the project to provide the client with a functioning facility. Documentation packages were provided to support validation protocols and operator training for all systems was provided by SPEC.
