Case Study – Optum (Pharmaceutical)


United Health decided to build a state-of-the-art facility for their national specialty brand, Optum


Optum needed a new facility designed and built within a seven-month timeframe to obtain the Certificate of Occupancy for their pharmaceutical license
This tight turnaround included site selection, utility extensions, extreme weather setbacks, an off-site drainage conveyance system and more


Crossdock work tirelessly with architects, contractors, civil engineers, brokers, suppliers, and government officials to focus on speed-oriented development
By creating a neural network of team collaboration for direct lines of communication, Crossdock quickly managed obstacles to facilitate an unprecedented turnaround time


The Optum facility was developed as a prototype for future projects
Designed to be expandable to double in size for future growth, the facility offers ample space for various applications


Developed with time and cost savings at the forefront of this project, Optum was able to occupy the facility in record time.
