Showcase Topic: Project Management of Lab & Bio-Manufacturing Buildings – Challenges are Non-Linear to Project Size

Presentation Synopsis: In the biotech and life science industry, scale or size has a different meaning than in traditional industries. Product sizes may be on a milliliter or nano scale. While the products may be tiny, the facilities that produce the research and that ultimately manufacture the products are much larger in scale. In the same way, the project management challenges faced on smaller size and value projects are often out of proportion to similar larger projects for larger clients.

Ms. Newman will present examples of the project delivery process from Facility Logix’s Project Management perspective and will highlight the unique challenges of working on smaller projects for clients who may develop a new facility one in a lifetime.

Presenter: Ms. Ingrid Newman , PMP, MBA, MCR, BSc. Engineering

Ms. Ingrid Newman has been a PMI-MC chapter member since 2015 with a prior post overseas as a volunteer with the PMI Southern Germany.
