AtkinsRéalis will employ a BIM solution for various aspects of the project, including architecture, MEP, and structural components
AtkinsRéalis, the professional services and project management company, has recently been awarded a significant contract by WuXi STA, a WuXi AppTec subsidiary, to provide engineering and design services for the first phase of an advanced active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturing facility in Singapore.
This initiative is set to enhance WuXi STA’s capabilities in supporting global healthcare innovation.
The proposed greenfield project will be developed on a 200,000 m² land parcel. Complying with Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) standards, the facility is designed to offer a wide range of high-quality services. This development is part of WuXi STA’s strategy to provide flexible, comprehensive R&D and manufacturing services to partners worldwide, thereby accelerating drug discoveries and the development of novel treatments.
In its role, AtkinsRéalis will employ a Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution for various aspects of the project, including architecture, mechanical, electrical, piping, and structural components. This approach is expected to ensure efficiency and value in the design and construction process.
Wing Law, Chief Executive Officer for Asia at AtkinsRéalis, expressed the company’s enthusiasm for the project. “Our commitment to facilitating a healthier world through technological and manufacturing expertise aligns perfectly with this project. The facility not only positions Singapore as a key biopharmaceutical hub but also bolsters WuXi STA’s global offerings. Our extensive design capabilities in Asia, coupled with our global experience, make us uniquely qualified to execute this project to the highest international standards.”
Upon completion, the Singapore facility is poised to become a crucial part of WuXi AppTec’s global network, which spans Asia, Europe, and North America. This expansion is expected to meet the increasing demand from multinational customers and strengthen collaborations with various partners.
AtkinsRéalis, known for its best-in-class engineering and project delivery solutions, especially in the biopharmaceutical sector, will bring its comprehensive design, engineering, procurement, and construction management services to this project. The company’s expertise in handling complex projects across buildings, industrial, transportation, and water sectors in Asia will be instrumental in the successful completion of WuXi STA’s new API manufacturing facility.
