Maximised footprint and flexibility for Oral Solid Dose Facility
Following the successful delivery of a new R&D facility for the world leader in addiction treatment, BES were awarded a £500,000 commission to design a new oral solid dose manufacturing facility, located on the same site.
Following an initial feasibility study to establish the project requirements, our Front End design team worked closely with the client from project inception to develop the design up to RIBA Stage 3.
We were tasked with designing a facility, which would make maximum use of the limited space available. Our solution included a below ground car park with a large span frame building above.
Through the use of Vierendeel beams, we designed four column-free production areas which provided flexibility in the process areas, packing hall and warehouse for any future changes in production.
