Fluor assembled an experienced team on Life Sciences global projects and provided early planning, conceptual, basic, detailed engineering and construction support for CSL Behring's Kankakee expansion. The facilities include one 174-foot-tall, seven-story manufacturing facility, an adjacent clean utilities facility, a single story plant utilities facility and a connecting pipe bridge / rack.
Major buildings and facilities in the expansion project include:
- Building 33, the main processing building, including space to more than double the capacity and deemed one of Illinois' tallest structures south of Chicago
- Building 34, an attached warehouse and clean utilities building, extending south of Building 33
- Building 35, a plant utilities building housing ammonia-based chillers providing cold glycol and compressed air for the needs of Building 33 and 34, and a pipe rack to Building 33 / 34
- Site modifications, including connections to provide power, potable water and other utility services to the building from other areas of the existing plant
The design was executed with Fluor's Greenville, South Carolina office as lead office and support from the Gliwice, Poland office. Starting the planning and conceptual design activities in the 2nd quarter of 2014, and the construction activities five months later, the engineering design was completed in 18 months. Fluor continued to provide home office construction support services during 2017 until project completion.
