Jacobs Engineering Group has received a contract to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management services to support the ongoing expansion of Genzyme's biopharma fill/finish tabletting facility in Waterford, Ireland.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2009.

Jacobs designed and installed the original Waterford production facility in 2001 which was part of Genzyme's global manufacturing expansion strategy. For the current project, Jacobs will fit out an existing shell and add a new utilities building to expand the 3,600-square-meter facility. The work will be executed from its Dublin office.

Genzyme, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is one of the world's leading biotechnology firms. The project is part of recently announced expansion plans that will enable the company to satisfy global demand for its therapeutic products.

Genzyme Ireland's Vice President and General Manager Dominic Carolan said, “The expansion of our Waterford facility will see a very significant increase in the site's biological fill/finish capacity.” In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Allyn Taylor stated, “We are proud to continue to support Genzyme's global leadership and its role as a major employer in Waterford County.”
