In addition to coordinating the expansion design efforts, BHDP provided seed ideas, phased construction documents and and implementation strategy to lead a project team that included West-Ward Pharmaceuticals’ top management and facility engineers. The new main entry ensures high cross-traffic volume, improves circulation, increases security and enhances wayfinding throughout the facility. The cafeteria accommodates more than 300 with varied types of seating, and the locker room expansion improved regulatory compliance with the implementation of a more rigorous gowning protocol.

The quality control laboratory saw the biggest process improvements, with bench space increased by 50 percent, a major reduction in clutter and yearly productivity increased by nearly 10 percent.
