Eli Lilly Arctic Project

About This Project

The Arctic project involves the establishment of a cutting-edge biotechnology facility in Co. Limerick, Ireland. This state-of-the-art facility focuses on the production of Monoclonal Antibodies (MAB) and Recombinant Proteins, utilizing advanced mammalian cell culture technology. Situated in a greenfield site, the comprehensive operations on the site encompass process development, warehousing, laboratories, administrative areas, utilities, and production activities.


As an Owner’s Engineer, I played a pivotal role in overseeing the HVAC systems, ensuring strict adherence to Lilly HVAC standards. This involved conducting meetings with vendors, contractors, and design firms to guarantee consistency across the entire site. During the transition from design to construction, I provided essential support to construction firms, ensuring the timely and proper installation of systems. This included actively participating in walkdowns during the installation phase.


A crucial aspect of my role was representing the end-user during Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) of key components such as Air Handling Units and Unidirectional Flow Units (UDFs). Collaborating closely with Commissioning and Qualification (C&Q) resources, I ensured that the requisite testing was conducted, validating the proper operation of equipment. My responsibilities extended to technical content ownership of crucial documents, including user requirements, Air Flow & Instrumentation Drawings (AF&IDs), functional requirements, and operational requirements for the HVAC systems.


By seamlessly integrating into the project life cycle, I contributed to the successful establishment of a state-of-the-art biotechnology facility while upholding the highest standards of quality and compliance.
