Austin completes two new projects

Advantica Ltd

Austin has completed the design and project management of the reorganisation of 33,000 sq.m of space at premises in Loughborough for Advantica Ltd.

This Building Rationalisation Project involved the consolidation of Advantica operations into half the building space and stripping back the remaining area into shell and core space.

Existing office area accommodation was evaluated and a solution developed to reduce space, improve layouts, provide flexibility and create a better sense of focus and identity.

Health Protection Agency (HPA)

For the HPA site at Porton Down, Wiltshire, Austin has designed and constructed two projects; one for biopharmaceutical products and the other as a cryogenic storage facility
for cell cultures.

The pharmaceutical stores facility was designed to meet the regulatory requirements of the MCA in the UK and the FDA in the USA, and included specialised flammable and corrosive storage facilities, dispensary, wash-up, QC sampling, walk-in cold rooms and an office suite.

The state-of-the-art ultra low temperature cryogenic storage facility for cell cultures included a 20,000 litre liquid nitrogen dual reservoir system, automatic filling for 40 storage vessels, the latest telemetry monitoring systems and oxygen monitoring systems.
