The Acorda facility’s intended use is to produce a biotherapeutic for Alzheimer’s in an inhalable drug delivery to improve patient outcomes. DSI’s scope included the installation of the largest Spray Dryer for a pharmaceutical application in the world.

The entire facility was designed and constructed to house said Spray Dryer and the supporting equipment. There were challenges in design and construction to meet form and function of the equipment that the whole project team overcame.
