Award winner

Grand River Aseptic Manufacturing’s (GRAM) state-of-the-art, large-scale fill/finish facility, designed and constructed in collaboration with CRB has been named a 2021 Facility of the Year Award winner by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering. The ISPE selected GRAM for its Special Recognition for Operational Agility: Covid-19 Impact award


GRAM is a leading injectable contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) that selected CRB and its ONEsolution™ project delivery team to design and construct GRAM’s 60,000+ square-foot facility in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Working closely with CRB’s ONEsolution project team, GRAM completed construction on-budget and ahead of schedule – enabling GRAM to open the pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in June 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. CRB optimized delivery and phasing for the facility, allowing for fast-tracked procurement, detailed planning, and construction.

“We congratulate the team at GRAM, whose commitment to quality and safety positioned this facility to play a critical role in the nation’s pandemic response,” said CRB President Ryan Schroeder.
