Bristol-Myers Squibb

Large Scale Cell Culture Project - Phase 1

Project Overview

Arden’s extensive capacity and experience in the prefabrication of pharmaceutical process piping helped BMS achieve extraordinary schedule targets in the construction of this large-scale and complex life sciences facility.

Project Detail

In the fight against serious disease, biologics – or protein-derived therapies – are playing an increasingly prominent role. Pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) is leading the advancement of this research application by
investing an estimated one billion dollars in the construction of a 1.5 million-square-foot biologics manufacturing plant in Devens, MA. The magnitude of
the BMS Large Scale Cell Culture (LSCC) project and the speed with which it was
completed is unprecedented.
