IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC is one of the fastest-growing companies in the AEC industry with a global reach that spans over nine countries in four continents. Our cornerstones of Knowledge, Skill & Passion fuel our growth and cultivate a collaborative environment that drives our company. How did IPS once, a company of two, become a unique and innovative provider of technical consulting, architectural, engineering, construction management, and compliance services for technically complex development and manufacturing facilities in heavy regulated industries?
There are many reasons for our company’s remarkable growth. IPS was founded in 1989, as a unique firm focused on aligning our services with the business drivers of our clients and delivering projects on an integrated design-build platform. It was quite innovative and bold at that time. Since then, we have developed, executed, and advanced a number of strategies to reach our global status today. IPS moved from an execution-based company to a knowledge-based company and attracted several Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) that don’t just design and construct facilities, but solve a client’s problem.
Today, our extensive list of industry-recognized SMEs – a large number of whom have owner-side operating experience – possess deep global regulatory, and best-in-class technical expertise. As such, IPS remains at the forefront of new technologies and innovations in the industry. Clients reach out to IPS because of our recognizable brand of knowledge leadership. As IPS continues to grow, we do not lose sight of what has brought us here today: listening to the needs and challenges of our clients and providing integrated project and business solutions that help them create and manufacture life-impacting products.
IPS prides itself as a global leader in developing innovative solutions in the design, engineering, construction, and commissioning and qualification of technically complex facilities worldwide, with a keen focus on the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and life sciences industry. We offer technical expertise that spans research and development to pilot-scale production to large-scale manufacturing, specializing in the latest trends, technology, and regulatory environment.
The rapid pace at which technology evolves demands we stay at the forefront of innovation. Using leading edge tools such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), and exercising Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) and LEAN construction are vital to our work, but it isn’t what sets us apart from the competition. What differentiates IPS from our competitors is applying these tools with our technical expertise to pioneer advanced solutions to our clients’ challenges. We create the ultimate modular delivery platform as a standardized solution to meet speed-to-market requirements for next-generation cell and gene therapies. We design facilities of the future that flex and adapt to new technologies, processes or products. Additionally, we develop training modules for pharmaceutical operators and regulatory agencies like the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on barrier technology, handling potent products safely, and monitoring operational improvements.
We support our clients around the globe and work on projects that utilize a wide spectrum of disciplines, technologies, tools, and subject matter expertise. There is continuous collaboration among our teams, a healthy flow of knowledge sharing, new ideas transpiring, and innovative solutions realized.
To date, IPS has been the recipient of many global and local awards, including six Facility of the Year Awards by the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), and has consistently ranked in the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Top 25 Engineering Firms, Architectural Firm, and Contractors lists. At IPS, we stay true to the Knowledge, Skill & Passion that distinguishes us from the competition and enables us to deliver innovative technical and business solutions that help our clients succeed in creating and manufacturing life-impacting products around the world.
