Boulting Environmental Services has been awarded a contract for the design and construction of a new Quality Assurance Laboratory for a pharmaceutical blue-chip client.
Employed as principal designer and principal contractor, the team will deliver this project on a full turnkey basis, including civil and structural, architectural, HVAC and electrical services.
Based on extensive experience in designing and building many similar laboratory facilities, BES were able to improve the flow and spatial efficiency of the initial brief, providing a buildable solution which meets current Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) requirements as well as the client's own corporate standards.
In order to allow for much more accuracy and precision while designing and building, BES generated realistic 3D renderings of interior spaces, creating a complete overview of the design solution.
One of BES's senior planners has developed a detailed schedule to ensure that the construction works are completed within a challenging 22 week period.
A value engineering exercise to reconfigure the mezzanine plantroom, generated significant savings for the Client and the team are now focusing on the final design solution, which include control of powders within the weighing room and maintaining close environmental conditions to ensure stability of retained samples.
