NanoViricides, Inc. Appoints Id3A, LLC as Architect for its previously announced cGMP Production and Laboratory Facility

NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC) (the "Company") announced today that it has retained Id3A, LLC (“Id3A”), as the architect for its laboratory and cGMP pilot production facility project. As previously announced, this facility will be built by renovating an existing 18,000 sq. ft. light manufacturing plant on a 4.2 acre lot in Shelton, CT. Ms. Kathyann Cowles, AIA, will serve as the Principal Architect for the project. Id3A recently began working with the Company for the architecture portion and now the Company has formally engaged Id3A as the architects for this project. Id3A will be responsible for the overall facility architecture, including integration of a separately constructed Clean Room Suite for cGMP production. Ms Cowles will join Mr. Andrew Hahn and Mr. Phil Mader of MPH Engineering, LLC (MPH) to complete our architecture, design and construction management team. As previously announced, Mr. Hahn continues to provide overall stewardship of the project, while Mr. Mader is responsible for detailed project management, and his firm, MPH, is providing engineering services.

Ms. Cowles, co-founder of Id3A, has over thirty years of experience as a licensed Architect and Senior Project Manager for diverse and complex design and construction projects in the academic, science, technology, corporate and research sectors. Id3A, a women-owned business, was co-founded by Ms. Cowles and Ms. Demko, and it acquired the Connecticut practice of Perkins+Will in 2001.

Prior to founding Id3A, Ms. Cowles has worked on a variety of projects in the Pharma, Medical, Academic, and Science sectors. These include Chemistry and Biology (BL4) Lab Renovations, an MRI Suite, and CADD and SATT Lab projects at the Bristol-Myers-Squibb Company in Wallingford, CT. Other projects include Northeastern University’s New Biomedical Research Facility, Yale University’s Osborne Research Lab; as well as Operating Rooms, Wound Care Units, Histology, and other Labs at renowned hospitals including Greenwich Hospital, CT, Englewood Hospital, NJ, and Windham Hospital, CT. She has won several prestigious awards during her distinguished career.

“Ms. Cowles has a unique ability to work with clients in meeting complex and detailed requirements,” said Anil R. Diwan, PhD, President of the Company, adding, “This is critically important for our challenging project that specifies not only state-of-the-art facility requirements, but also cost sensitivity, space efficiency, and a high degree of energy efficiency.”

The Company has previously reported about the Shelton light industrial building that will house the cGMP pilot production plant, research laboratories, and offices. The cGMP pilot plant is being designed for the production of sufficient quantities of the drug needed for human clinical trials for each of the various nanoviricides® drug candidates as they advance into the clinical pipeline.

The light industrial building at 1 Controls Drive, Shelton CT was purchased by Inno-Haven, LLC. Inno-Haven is a private company that was founded by Dr. Anil R. Diwan, the Company’s CEO, and financed by himself and certain of his friends and associates, with the specific purpose of enabling clinical cGMP manufacturing capabilities for NanoViricides, Inc. drug substances. Acquisition of this 18,000 sqft building on 4.2 acres of land was previously announced by NanoViricides, Inc. in September, 2011. Renovation of the building is to be performed as per the requirements of NanoViricides, Inc. for the production of the nanoviricides drug candidates for clinical trials under cGMP processes. The drug substance produced in this facility will then be delivered to a third party for final processing and labeling, as required, for human clinical trials when ready. NanoViricides, Inc. expects to lease this facility. No lease has been signed yet and no terms of lease have been finalized as of now.
