ACS are currently carrying out the first phase which is the construction of a new Development Laboratory and Clean room Facility for our client in Hull.
Following the completion of a detailed design phase, ACS have successfully delivered a £1.7 million civils contract to construct a new Research and Development facility for a global pharmaceutical business. In our role as Infrastructure and Civils Contractor we are carrying out a complete turnkey package including groundwork, pilling, and concrete slab construction with associated drainage and external works.
ACS’ in-house team of engineers and commercial team have worked incredibly hard to provide a cost effective and environmentally responsible solution, customised to suit our client’s requirements.
Working closely with the users and engineering teams we used the client’s initial concept study and developed it into a fully compliant civils solution.
The final design culminated in a 5,000 square metre two storey building comprising ISO7 & ISO8 cleanrooms and laboratories, with external staff and visitor parking and delivery areas.
We are now well into the construction phase of the project and have almost completed the works on the brownfield site in Hull.
With the overall project completion scheduled for the second quarter of 2017, this contract is extremely significant for ACS, with the opportunity to build a relationship with a new client, and bring to life this highly prestigious facility, which will be the European Centre of Excellence in the field of addiction treatment development. Formation and the site clearance works were completed in the proposed 5 week duration and that included environmental sustainability works to form the green belt bund. Foundation bases and associated ground beams were also completed on programme and constructed in two large concrete pours placed with the large 42 metre concrete pump. Works are now well under way on the substructure brickwork package working alongside and in conjunction with the steel and cladding erectors.
The current phase of works is the construction of the external car park and upper floor concrete pours, followed by the screeding to the ground floor pre cast planks and the external service yards. On the site was a large drainage package consisting of an attenuation tank with a designed volume of 500m3, foul and surface water outfall connections and all associated drainage runs to feed the new building. Ducting works also formed part of the contract works with over 2500 l/m being installed and a multi utility trench to get services to the vicinity of the building which again required a lot of coordination with utilities companies to keep on programme.
As a result of our delivery the client has indicated he would like to negotiate the next phase with us due to start in May next year.
