JACOBS AWARDED CONTRACTS FROM THE LIPOSOME CO. PASADENA, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Engineering Group
Inc. (NYSE: JEC) announced today the receipt of a contract from The Liposome Co. Inc. to provide engineering services for a multi-product facility to manufacture products intended for use in clinical trials.
Jacobs is also providing the process engineering, including concept development and scale-up support, for Liposome's TLC G-65 drug, which is being developed to treat Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare (MAI) in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The announcement was made by Jacobs' Group Vice President William R. Kerler who said the two New Jersey projects have targeted completion dates in 1993. The value of the contracts was undisclosed. The engineering services for the Liposome 15,000-square-foot clinical facility's master plan include full design development based on approved conceptual designs and project budgets, Kerler said. Key design elements include multiple universal suites with clean environments up to Class 100 to support the full range of Liposome products, now and in the future. The scale-up of the TLCG-65 process was designed around Jacobs' modular design expertise. Jacobs is able to develop the unit design independent of the units' final facility location, Kerler said. This approach also allows Jacobs to establish the process requirements early in the design. Jacobs Engineering Group, headquartered in Pasadena, provides single-source consulting, engineering, design, architectural, environmental and hazardous waste management, procurement, construction, construction management, contract maintenance and operations services to government and industry worldwide. Jacobs has 22 offices located throughout the United States and Ireland, with a major office in Somerset, N.J. -0- 3/11/92 /CONTACT: Stefanie Spikell of Jacobs Engineering, 818-449-2171/ (JEC) CO: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc.; The Liposome Company Inc.
