Biopharma Feasibility Study

Client: Confidential, Biopharma

A biopharmaceutical client engaged BPE to assess the feasibility of refurbishing an existing under utilised pilot facility to accommodate a small scale GMP bio-manufacturing process.

The feasibility study was executed through a series of interactive presentations/workshops to the client project team and client stakeholders.

The project problem statement was agreed ,value drivers listed and options identified. Then with each subsequent presentation/workshop the options were rationalised and the scope defined against the project value drivers. This approach achieved client ‘buy-in’ and consensus for the next phase of the project which is also currently being executed by BPE.
