Bausch Health Companies Inc. is a global company whose mission is to improve people’s lives with health care products. They develop a range of pharmaceutical, medical device and over-the-counter products, primarily in the therapeutic areas of eye health, gastroenterology and dermatology. FPBA partnered with Bausch Health to provide a 42,000-square-foot multi-phased tenant improvement for their primary dermatology R&D site.
The first phase consisted of an 11,000-square-foot renovation of office areas, conference rooms, and a reception area, as well as site accessibility upgrades. New storefront glass, doors, movable partitions and modern finishes rounded out the office refresh.
In the second phase, FPBA led the design and engineering team through 30,000 square feet of mechanical and lighting upgrades. Phase three included 8,000 square feet of lab improvements, resulting in an expanded analytical lab, formulations lab, and associated lab support rooms.
This project was a highly technical, complex project that required close coordination among Bausch Health, FPBA and the contractor to sequence the project in multiple sub-phases to maintain a fully functional, operational facility during construction. The team successfully completed the project in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic with minimal schedule impact.
