BRISTOLMYERS SQUIBB COMPANY, Syracuse, NY 1991 2006 Senior Project Manager, Process Engineer, & Construction Manager , Site Engineer ing Group, 2004 2006 Developed and led a team charged with completing the fast track design, constru ction, installation, commissioning, qualification, and validation of a new $2.75 million Biologics Technical Support Facility (BTSF) to produce Phase 1, 2, and 3 clinical compounds. RANDALL L. BERMAN PAGE TWO Managed construction and expedited design for the fast track implementation of a new $275,000 Quality Control Wet Chemistry lab in preparation for Canadian, Eu ropean, and U.S. regulatory agency PAIs. Chaired a team that executed the design, construction management, commissioning and validation of a $600,000 automated bulk storage and distribution facility f or carbon dioxide and oxygen vital to maintaining and controlling biologic ferme ntations. Loss of supply would mean a per batch loss of approximately $800,000. Facility reduced the number of operating personnel and eliminated life safety issues associated with the manual handling of 150-gallon Dewar storage container s. Researched, specified, evaluated, purchased, installed, and validated six $900, 000 walk-in environmental chambers to store API stability samples at temperature s ranging from -40C to +40C, providing long term stability data required by the FDA. Conceptualized, designed, and managed construction of a $2.2 million necropsy c ontainment suite transforming an existing lab into a state-of-the-art facility b y providing ventilation per the American National Standards for Lab Ventilation guidelines to protect the lab technicians and pathologists. Interim Plant Engineering Manager, Onsite Facility Engineering Group, 2003 2004 Created and led a team to research and implement a $3.2 million production faci lity redesign to provide operating personnel with life safety containment for pr oducts used to make Band 5 toxic compounds. Senior Process, Project and Construction Engineer, Onsite Facility Engineering G roup, 1995 2003 Budgeted, designed, gained senior management approval, managed construction, an d commissioned over 85 environmental, safety, utility, and process infrastructur e projects, each with a budget up to $3.0 million. Completed the fast track management of a $3.5 million site-wide Title V (Clean Air Act) Monitoring Equipment Compliance Upgrade Plan to meet the New York State Department of Environmental Conservations (DEC) mandate that all standards for long term chemical bulk storage facilities be met within a 6 month timeframe. Produced plant site compliance with DEC hazardous air pollutant (HAP) regulatio ns by managing the construction of a $2.25 million spin flash dryer system in a solvent laden explosive atmosphere while maintaining manufacturing operations 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Increased bulk cephalosporin antibiotics production 33% by constructing a $750, 000 ultra filtration system.

Senior Process Engineer and Construction Engineer, Corporate Global Engineering Group 1991 1995 Developed, issued, and evaluated bid packages for process equipment and special ty items procurement for a $65.0 million anti-cancer development facility. Managed the design, construction, and start-up of a new $5.0 million volatile o rganic compound (VOC) incinerator that doubled the capacity for organic waste ga s removal at the Puerto Rico facility. Supervised the design, construction, and installation of a new $4.0 million sol id waste incinerator in Puerto Rico that eliminated the need to truck approximat ely 200 tons of solid waste per month to a landfill. Designed and managed construction of a new $3.0 million wastewater pretreatment facility for the Puerto Rico plant that allowed the site to meet federal wastew ater discharge regulations and remain in operation.
