Ampio Opens New Facility in Englewood, Colorado
Because staying healthy is an important aspect of everyday life, people with inflammatory diseases are always searching for the latest and greatest thing to make them feel better. They want something that will remove the aches and pains associated with the inflammation in conditions like osteoarthritis of the knee. Ampio is a development stage pharmaceutical company who concentrates on the medicine that will eliminate those aches and pains. In late 2014, Ampio completed a 19,000 sf pharmaceutical production facility in Englewood, CO. The facility includes clean rooms, laboratories, warehouse, and office space.
GBA provided architecture, structural, mechanical, electrical and controls design services as well as equipment procurement. GBA Builders was also a part of the project and provided construction management services. The design includes a modular clean room for aseptic processing, utility design for pure steam, water for injection, compressed air, nitrogen, argon and central vacuum system. These are important aspects to a facility that must be kept clean of outside contaminants.
Working with a development stage pharmaceutical company is an exciting new venture for GBA, “Working with pharma companies in late stage development is different than working for large or even medium size life sciences companies” said Joe Winslow, GBA’s project manager and owner’s representative on the project. “They have a different and more exciting energy about them and they are more willing to try new and innovative ideas in construction and equipment.”
The facility now has employees making use of the clean rooms, laboratories and office space. Although the facility in Colorado has only been open a short time, Ampio Pharmaceuticals has been in business since 2010. This is a very exciting time for Ampio Pharmaceuticals as they begin testing their latest medications in their new state-of-the-art facility.
