Biotech & Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms

Technologies that deliver improvements in the human condition are emerging at a blistering pace – cures for illnesses once thought to be terminal, remedies customized for individual recipients, and the list goes on. At AdvanceTEC, we don’t create the cures – but we do enable them. We help these treatments reach the market as fast as possible. Our team understands the challenges and requirements of advanced cGMP compliant cleanrooms and validated systems – and the need to get from funding to production as fast as possible. We have the expertise and know-how to engineer, design, integrate and create the cGMP environment you need so you can cure.


  • Manufacturer independent approach allows selection of the optimal cGMP architectural solution = avoid being locked into an inflexible proprietary system not ideal for your project
  • Modular system integration experience and a single focal point reduces risk and accelerates project execution
  • Walkable cGMP ceilings enable concurrent construction, minimizing schedule duration as above ceiling work and flooring/wall system installation is performed at the same time
  • Flexible project scope and resource deployment, from turn-key design/build, to design assist cGMP cleanroom envelope scopes of work
  • Process tool fit-up and hook-up capabilities, including rigging/setting and installation of your process systems.

Whether you require a 500 square foot BSL3 lab, a 50,000 square foot cGMP cleanroom, or a concept to commissioning full turn-key project, AdvanceTEC’s experience and proven methodologies reduce project risk and improve time to completion.
