Maugel Designs Pharmaceutical Facility

LFB USA facility

Marlborough, MA – Maugel Architects, Inc. of Harvard announced the design of the new $37 million manufacturing facility for LFB USA, a unit of France’s biopharmaceutical firm LFB Group.

The 70,000sf facility will house 30,000sf of clean room manufacturing space, 20,000sf of warehouse space, and 14,000sf of office space. Maugel worked closely with the client and the consulting process engineer to ensure the clean room manufacturing was efficient and state-of-the-art. A distinct modern aesthetic was designed for the building’s exterior.

Other team members included Whitman & Bingham Associates; TF Moran, Inc.; William F. Lynch Co., Inc.; Shepherd Engineering, SNC-Lavalin Project Services; and R.P. Masiello.


“LFB’s addition to Marlborough’s expanding biotech cluster reinforces the positive outlook for the MetroWest region,” said Jon Cocker, institutional studio head at Maugel Architects.  “For more than two decades, Maugel has been designing labs and life sciences facilities in the Boston suburbs. It was a pleasure working with LFB on this exciting new facility in MetroWest.”

Located on Crowley Drive, the facility will produce the drug ATryn used in the treatment of preeclampsia, a leading cause of maternal and infant death.
