To install hygienic process piping at Vaccines and Diagnostics plant in Holly Springs, NC
Total Facility Solutions, a specialist contractor focused on critical process infrastructure, has been awarded a contract to install hygienic process piping at the Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics campus in Holly Springs, North Carolina, US.
The order is part of Novartis’ US$36m expansion of its pandemic and seasonal flu production facility, announced last December, which will create 100 new jobs at the Holly Springs development lab and pilot plant.
‘This selection to fabricate and install process piping at Novartis affirms the strength of our model for serving the life science business,’ said Joe Cestari, president of Total Facility Solutions.
‘Having invested heavily in our own North Carolina facility in 2009, we bring the infrastructure, industry expertise and experienced personnel necessary to execute on this project on time, on budget and to specification.’
The project will be operated out of Total Facility Solutions’ Raleigh, NC location, using its 4,000ft2 clean manufacturing space to complete all building work. This plant is equipped with the latest technology for orbital welding and meets stringent market requirements while facilitating just-in-time delivery to the construction site. Bovis Lend Lease and Novartis’ project managers are overseeing the project.
Total Facility Solutions (TFS) provides turnkey facilities contracting services including high-purity piping, gas and chemical systems, ultra-high purity water systems, tool and equipment installation, clean utilities, and electrical services to the semiconductor, electronics, nanotechnology, photovoltaic, life sciences, mission critical, and renewable energy industries.
