Jacobs bags additional contract from Bristol-Myers Squibb in Ireland

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc said that it received a contract from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company to provide construction management services for a new large-scale biologics manufacturing facility in Cruiserath, county Dublin, Ireland. 

The new facility, estimated to be operational in 2019, is expected to include multiple large scale bioreactors, a purification area, as well as office and laboratory space. Jacobs is also providing architectural and engineering services for the facility, it said.

Bristol-Myers Squibb’s board of directors has approved initial funding that will support the first phase of the project, with the full cost of the facility expected to be finalized in the second half of 2015.

“We are excited to provide construction management services to Bristol-Myers Squibb, especially since our team is already mobilized and engaged in this project. The continuity and knowledge we bring, having already provided architectural and engineering services, is a tremendous benefit in bringing this project to fruition,” said Chris Nagel, vice president, Jacobs Group.
