Congratulations to MSD and the MSD Biotech project team. The cutting-edge new biotechnology facility in Co. Dublin has won the CURT Project Excellence Award (Projects Over $1Bn category).

Now at completion, the 30,000 sq.m. development will play a pivotal role in the manufacture of MSD’s biologics-based medicines, including in the area of immuno-oncology. It will also expand MSD’s current internal network of biologics drug substance manufacturing plants. Full manufacturing operations are expected to commence in 2021.

The €750m project, for which EPCMCQ was managed by a JV of PM Group and Jacobs Engineering, has set a new benchmark with respect to excellence in project delivery for biopharmaceutical facilities. During construction, in excess of 4.8 million hours were worked onsite without a Lost Time Incident (LTI). This achievement required conscious, continuous focus on planning, coordination and cooperation of all stakeholders.

“This impressive facility is a testament to the collaboration and exceptional effort of all those who worked on the project” said John Hassett, Project Construction Director.
