Biotec converted warehouse

Biotec Services International Limited



Project value

£700,000 | Time scale: 16 weeks

The client

Biotec Services International Limited provides high quality clinical supplies and pharmaceutical services for the global markets.

The design brief

To convert a disused warehouse into a modern temperature controlled pharmaceutical packaging and storage facility.

Project delivery

Bbi won a competitive tender and, working under the project management of DTZ, was tasked to value engineer a previous design for a temperature controlled pharmaceutical packaging and storage facility. Bbi provided a full design and build turnkey project to better suit the client’s budget.

The key element of the value engineering exercise was an alternative solution for the controlled ambient warehouse. This was designed by the Bbi in-house mechanical and electrical team and succeeded in saving Biotec more than £100,000.

The solution passed a third party verification process, and the areas designed and built by Bbi give Biotec a full temperature range from controlled ambient down to minus 20c.

Bbi was presented with a further challenge halfway through the project to construct an additional mezzanine floor to house 150sqm of office accommodation. This was completed on spec and without causing a significant delay to the overall project.

Steve Price from Bbi said: “This project certainly put us to the test as we had to value engineer someone else’s work to maintain temperature control requirements but at a reduced cost".

“It is a good example of the different service areas within Bbi coming together to deliver effectively on a project.”
