The Technology & Innovation Center features industry-leading technology for accuracy to ensure patient safety and drive down the cost of healthcare.

Concrete Strategies performed the site utilities, tilt-up and flatwork for this 260,000-square-foot prescription filling facility for Express Scripts, one of the largest pharmacy benefit management companies in North America.

With a very fast-track schedule, CSI completed all 5,500-cubic-yards of flatwork and tilt-up in just 3 weeks. The sanitary and storm sewer package for this facility included: 150 feet of 27-inch pipe, 540 feet of 24-inch pipe, 740 feet of 18-inch pipe, 500 feet of 15-inch pipe, 780 feet of 12-inch pipe, 700 feet of 8-inch pipe, and 900 feet of 6-inch pipe.

The facility contains 6,000-square-feet of freezer/cooler space, secured specialty drug areas, and 51,000-square-feet of mezzanine space for mail rooms and production offices. The facility also contains a unique, quarter-mile elevated tour path that allows customers to walk above and through the production equipment, which dispenses 500,000 pills per hour and packages and ships up to 110,000 prescriptions a day. The tour path features glass handrails, epoxy floors, and video screens that describe each operation as the client walks by.
