PIERI ARCHITECTS PROJECTS: Sartorius Stedim Campus Expansion in Yauco, Puerto Rico Under Construction

Posted Posted in BLOG, PIERI ARCHITECTS, Work

The Expansion of the Sartorius Stedim Biotech Campus facilities designed by Pieri Architects is under construction and is set to be complete by July 2018. The 320,000 SF Expansion is part of a 40-acre campus Master Plan that includes a 540-car employee surface parking area that uses open-grid paving, a 240,000SF FMT Operations Expansion, and an 80,000 SF FT Membrane and Casting manufacturing facility. The site landscaping plan will plant over 1,200 trees to mitigate the trees lost during construction. The buildings, systems, and site are designed to meet all LEED standards. For more information on the design of this project, you can access our page:    Sartorius Stedim Campus Expansion

The sustainable design challenge for this project was to apply the strategies, standards, and metrics used to achieve a LEED Platinum certification for the adjacent Sartorius Stedim ECO facility completed in 2012 and  designed by PIERI ARCHITECTS.  The ECO building was the first biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility to achieve a LEED Platinum-certification.

Our Team serving the community


After Hurricane Maria, Our Team worked diligently to clean-up and re-establish a normal work-flow and routine under these difficult circumstances, each contributing to the recovery effort helping our communities, families, and friends. The PIERI ARCHITECTS Team partnered with the AIA Puerto Rico Chapter to assist the Puerto Rico Department of Education in safety assessment evaluation to guarantee the safety occupancy of students in our schools. This was possible thanks to the AIA which conducted a Safety Assessment Program (SAP) training where five PIERI ARCHITECTS Team members participated and obtained a certification. I am very proud of our incredible team and their continuing efforts to speed Puerto Rico’s recovery during these challenging times.
