Tiernan & Patrylo completed the design and construction of this state of the art inhaler manufacturing facility for Gerresheimer Medical Plastics, USA, a world-class manu-facturer of a variety of medical devices. The facility ex-pansion included more than 82,000 square feet. It is comprised of new clean room, assembly area, material process quality control room, and offices.
The design criteria was demanding (Class 8) and required multistage pressure drops from manufacturing, to packaging and finished goods, and multiple air changes with HEPA filtration. The novel approach required all injection molding machine utilities be fed from above the floor to facilitate cleaning.
