SNC-LAVALIN TO DELIVER HIGH-TECH MEDICAL MANUFACTURING FACILITY
SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. has been commissioned by United States-based firm Dexcom to help deliver a major manufacturing facility in Malaysia that will produce continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGM) for diabetes management.
Under the agreement with Dexcom -- the world leader in CGM technology -- SNC-Lavalin will provide project controls and construction management services for the Dexcom facility in Penang, Malaysia, working with international and local consultants from concept to design, construction and commissioning.
"With more than 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device market, this contract is in line with our forward strategy to continue growing our high-potential core services business in Asia-Pacific where we have a long history and strong presence. This project showcases the value we bring our clients, leveraging our global capabilities and local delivery across the infrastructure sector, and our strong track record serving some of the most reputable brands in the medical and health care sector," said Ian L. Edwards, president and chief executive officer of SNC-Lavalin.
"This is an important and exciting project to be part of as we help Dexcom meet growing overseas demand for its devices that bring peace of mind to those living with diabetes. The contract also adds to our portfolio of medical and health care projects in the region, delivered by specialist teams with a deep knowledge of the sector," said Steve Morriss, president of Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and mining and metallurgy.
The project is fast-tracked within an 18-month time frame from construction to completion. Design is being managed and delivered just ahead of construction, which requires the SNC-Lavalin team to be flexible and adaptable while ensuring the construction program remains on track, on budget and to the expected quality standards. The facility covers an area of 29 acres and 1.75 million square feet of built-up area, hosting state-of-the-art clean-room manufacturing, a warehouse, office building, multilevel car park and utility building.
