Pharmaceutical Facility Manchester

A US biotech business invested £5m in a new European headquarters in Manchester. The building footprint expanded from 11,000 sq ft. to 60,000 sq ft. and required a durable hygienic, easy to clean, seamless floor.

For the expansion of this biotech headquarters, the change of use of each of the buildings required the flooring to be brought up to a suitable standard by installing durable, easy to clean, seamless resin flooring. Air tight electrical doors were fitted therefore the floor levels had to be at the correct datum lines. It was essential that the fittings were precise to avoid any potential areas where air movement control and contamination could be a problem. A clean room environment was crucial due to the nature of the research. The project was short listed for the FeRFA Large Project of the Year FeRFA awards 2012.
