Akorn Pharmaceuticals office and lab in Decatur is under construction to gain a 50,607 square foot addition to the existing building. The project is a large scaled BIM project for E.L. Pruitt Co. Exterior wall panels were designed and hung on the new structure. Specialized orbital weld piping is placed throughout the new laboratory space for appropriate water and drainage flow. Without the specialty piping, destruction and inadequate elimination of the chemicals could accelerate break down in the piping systems. Heat piping, ductwork, and plumbing systems have been designed for efficiency and safety throughout the addition. The expansion will accommodate the company's growing pharmaceutical development within the facility.
