Bio Products Laboratory Ltd

The technical solution included new AHU, chillers, pump sets, utility modifications, clean & process steam, ductwork modification and Building & Environmental management system extending to power and controls wiring.

This overall solution included:

  • New air handling unit being installed onto a new roof mounted steel platform together with a packaged chiller unit.
  • Ductwork routes being carefully chosen and coordinated around the facilities to allow it to pass through heavily congested existing services. This extended to routing across the roof and dropping through the existing structure into the service floor.
  • Site measure was required for most of the ductworks during the day with drawings issued to the manufacturer to fabricate and deliver the next day for installation to continue.
  • All ductwork was installed prior to the shutdown and the connection left ready for the final stage.
  • The final works was undertaken during a twelve day engineering maintenance and operations shutdown scheduled for works to change over the systems from the existing to the new. The required works was carried out during this period with 50 other trades onsite undertaking other maintenance and project works.
  • The planning extended to twice daily meetings with all trades to monitor, track progress, coordinate installation quality and agree the finer details.
  • Works were completed on time and the systems validated by the BPL’s independent team with the facility operational on programme as scheduled by production.

‘Austin delivered this highly critical project for BPL and completed the works within the planned shutdown to meet BPL’s stringent production schedule, overall cost budget and quality parameters’ – Mr William Lewis, BPL.
