In 2012, three Centers were established across the United States to provide fast, flexible access to the vaccines necessary to stop a pandemic in its tracks. These Centers were created in response to the growing threat a pandemic would pose to the safety and security of the United States as well as recognizing that the vast majority of the world’s vaccines are produced overseas. Overseen by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), these Centers are tasked with reliably and nimbly producing medical counter-measures to combat infectious disease and other chemical or radiological threats.
The Texas A&M Center for Innovation in Advanced Development & Manufacturing (CIADM) involved design and construction of three major facilities:
EEA provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and clean utility engineering services to support the successful execution of the CIADM’s mandate. Mechanical systems were designed to provide biocontainment of BSL-2 manufacturing and BSL-3 laboratory spaces. Clean utility systems included RODI, WFI, pure steam, process gasses, and biological waste decontamination.
