ity and operational efficiency,” explained Precis Engineering Principal Robert Dick, P.E. “We are honored that the Facil- ity of theYear experts recognized our team effort and project results.” The Morphotek pilot plant expects to earn a LEED cer- tification of Silver or higher, making it one of the world’s first pharmaceutical manufacturing plants to earn a LEED rat- ing. Sustainability was woven throughout design and construc- tion processes and built into the operations and long-term vision of the plant through: • Remediation of a brownfield

site to advanced levels of clean- liness. • Water and energy conserva- tions systems resulting in 30 per- cent more water efficiency, 33.2 percent more energy efficiency, and 90 percent more HVAC effi- ciency as compared to a standard pharmaceutical facility. • On-site solar energy generation via a rooftop array (expected to generate approximately enough annual electricity to power six U.S. homes for one year). • Use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software to inte- grate sustainable decisions into the design and offer an advanced level of project organization. n Developmen Constructi Renovation Mid Atlantic Estate Journ Contact: Elaine Fanni 800-584-1062/781-871-5298 E EFanning@mareJournal.
