Rigorous demands, international standards
JNE Consulting provides a full complement of engineering services that meet the rigorous demands and international standards of the pharmaceutical industry. We understand the design, construction, commissioning and operational requirements of the industry. We are governed by Good Manufacturing Practice standards to ensure a contamination-free environment.
Our range of capabilities was demonstrated during a CAT3 Compounding and Packaging Upgrade project, including a High Potency Manufacturing Suite, that was successfully completed at a pharmaceutical facility in Canada. The fixed-price project was awarded to JNE for both engineering and construction.
The facility was upgraded for the production of CAT3 products and to meet European Union requirements for clean rooms. CAT3 refers to Category 3 containment measures that are required when dealing with High Potency Materials. Clean rooms, where personnel use respirators and complete body suits, are production areas that require 100% containment.
The upgrade was accomplished using airlocks, pressurization and filtration as well as personnel procedures. The project also included renovations to an existing warehouse space to accommodate new packaging areas and two dispensing rooms.
Full production at the plant was maintained throughout the project’s lifetime, with JNE overseeing coordination between the client and the contractors. Following successful completion, the client engaged JNE to provide the engineering for further upgrades to the facility.
