Commercial Scale Drug Production – Front End Design

Client: Confidential Customer, UK

The Brief

Our Client needed to understand the options available to them in terms of delivering a new drug production capability at an existing manufacturing site.

The Challenges

Two significant options were tabled by the client and both needed careful review and analysis. The production facilities needed to deliver effective containment and to be fully optimised. A key challenge was to ensure that the design options were set in context with the overall strategy for development of the site.

The Respose

BPE developed two schemes for a new standalone facility and an alternative extension to include support for continuous processing. Key focal points included Lean Design, Regulatory Requirements, Containment, Process/Facility/Resources optimisation and Site Master Planning.

The Results

BPE were able to work closely with our client to develop two effective solutions to meet the project objectives. The design study provided a secure basis for decisions to be made on the future investment profile for the site.
