ESG worked with Upsher Smith on a 120,000 square foot expansion of its corporate headquarters facility in Maple Grove, Minnesota. The facility is the site for pharmaceutical manufacturing of ANDA and NDA drug products. ESG’s services for this project included program verification, complete design, project management and construction administration. The project includes 30,000 square feet of logistical warehouse space that provides both non-striated and uniform temperature storage.The project also includes 74,000 square feet of corporate office space, and 16,000 square feet of pharmaceutical laboratories. The building addition provided an opportunity to create a large central community space or “hub” for employees which can be used for informal gatherings, as lounge/breakout space, or as flexible meeting space.
