Following successful completion of the detailed design, we completed the construction and commissioning of this flagship sterile facility, built to exacting standards, including full integration of state of the art process equipment.
BES was appointed to carry out the design, internal fit out and commissioning of a new high-tech £120m sterile production facility within a demanding construction and commissioning schedule of 18 months. Further challenges included early completion of sterile areas and equipment utilities to allow testing and experimentation to take place while construction continued throughout the remainder of the suite – the first time such tests have been carried out on the site at such an early stage of construction.
Working in an Alliance partnership with the Client we established a build sequence which optimized our opportunities to run shell and fit out construction activities concurrently. Utility commissioning was phased to allow key process equipment to be commissioned and qualified at an extremely early stage while the key sterile processing area was completed, with fully vinyled finishes throughout and environmental control operational to allow early experimentation to take place. The hugely successful project is a flagship facility, with all key success factors fully met.
Very happy with the performance in all aspects. If we had to do it all again we would want to go with the same team. They were excellent.
