Manufacturing area expansion - West Wales
Clean Room Construction was employed for its third major project at biotechnology company Protherics to expand an existing manufacturing area while the company maintained production.
Previously CRC had designed, built and commissioned a pilot plant cleanroom suite for Protherics. The expansion facility design was integrated into the existing and new build extension and interfaced with the existing manufacturing suite. The facility area totalled 575m2 and was designed to a background cleanliness level of ISO Class 7 and ISO Class 5 vertical laminar flow hoods incorporating speed control fan filter units, located within the CRC modular ceiling grid system.
Protherics UK Ltd is now part of BTG, an international specialist healthcare company developing and commercialising products targeting acute care, oncology and vascular diseases. Protherics was the first UK biotechnology company to have fully developed and manufactured two biopharmaceutical products to the approval of the US Food and Drug Administration including a treatment for rattlesnake bites.
