RTI is accredited in the US by the American Association of Tissue Banks and is a member of Advamed.

This new facility enhances their current campus by following the process for research and development, tissue processing, and warehousing. By carefully isolating sensitive processing functions and zoning work groups, the RS&H design team was able to provide a work efficient layout while eliminating cross contamination risks.

The design team developed a cGMP processing area that supports ISO Class 8 pre- and post-process work areas and ISO Class 7 process and vialing suites. Strict attention to detail allows for the integration of accessible mechanical building support systems apart from clean finish areas in a sustainable coherent design.

The cGMP area includes lockers and gown in and out garb areas, tissue prep and transfer stations, process modules and ante rooms to control pressurization, pass-through windows and transfer stations, product QC, control rate, and liquid nitrogen freezer areas.

The R&D laboratories include tissue and cell culture laboratories, histology and cell biology, chemistry lab, and test labs. Technical services labs include debride suites, process areas, machine shop, and freezer and refrigerator storage areas. Warehouse area includes bulk goods storage, Incoming Donor Tissue (IDT) process and storage areas, and quarantine areas. This project was a design-build delivery.

Architectural and Structural documents were completed in BIM REVIT software.
