ISPE Facility of the Year Award Winners

ISPE Facility of the Year Award Winners

Since TRIA’s foundation seven years ago, we have had the privilege of partnering with some of the biggest names in the pharmaceutical industry, designing innovative state-of-the-art facilities. Our research-based process  ensures that we provide the right design solution that can help any company’s mission thrive. The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) has granted three Facility of the Year awards to TRIA designed facilities. Below we have highlighted these projects:

Moderna Therapeutics

The facility was awarded the ISPE 2019 Facility of the Future Category Award.

TRIA and DPS worked as partners on this LEED Gold project. DPS provided full architectural and engineering design for the Norwood facility as well as construction management oversight, commissioning, qualification and validation and procurement services. TRIA designed clinical labs, offices, employee facilities, and a conference center. The facility provides the capacity to develop materials for pre-clinical toxicology studies, as well as Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical development programs. It also has the capability to support new medicines enabled by Moderna’s mRNA platform.

Elevate Bio

The facility was awarded the ISPE 2021 Operational Excellence Category Award.

TRIA provided architecture and design services for the interior fit-out of a raw warehouse space into a state-of-the art cGMP development and manufacturing facility for novel therapeutic technologies. Designed to feel like a “basecamp” – a physical foundation point for the incremental climb in the company’s growth, the client’s new facility features a collaborative open plan office and amenities that promote interaction and provide flexible production suites for GMP manufacturing, laboratories, and a range of supporting utility and warehouse areas. The facility was constructed to produce viral vector, cell therapy, gene therapy, and regenerative medicine for clinical purposes.


CRISPR Therapeutics

The facility was awarded the ISPE 2022 Innovation Category Award 

TRIA worked closely with the CRISPR to set the objectives of designing with flexibility and scale in mind. Our team approached the project with our proven process of visioning, programming/planning, design and execution.

Using group visioning sessions, executive workshops and focus groups, TRIA identified the client spatial and aesthetic needs and gained an understanding of the company culture. Like every lab we design, we used tools developed by TRIA to define the quantitative requirements for the project, which were developed and documented during the programming/planning process.

Efficient and unique, the open plan office and amenity spaces are designed to promote interaction and collaboration. The design embraced the abundant natural light and embraced the exposed steel structure of the building. Glass walls were incorporated throughout to provide transparency, natural light and a connection between the office and manufacturing space.

On September 21st ISPE will be hosting their annual product show, a one-day premiere biopharmaceutical show with some of the leading names in the industry. TRIA will be at booth W66, stop by to learn more about our ISPE Award Winning Designs.
