The new, 1,365m2 clean manufacturing site in Blackpool is an ISO class 8 factory that includes a packing area, tablet and supplement production location.
The airtight production area is atmosphere controlled to keep unwanted particulates out of the clean area. An air handling unit supplies and extracts the HEPA filtered air via corridor ceiling grilles.
“This is the first project undertaken with ISD Solutions and together we have value engineered a turnkey solution to meet the strict clean production requirements of The Nutrition Group,” explains Rachel Utting, project manager at Bassaire.
“All mechanical and electrical services are installed above the ceilings and these have been designed to be fully accessible with walk on access to allow maintenance work to be carried out from above, without compromising the cleanliness of production rooms below.
“Composite PIR panels incorporating a ‘clean safe’ plasticised finish are an ideal construction solution for clean room and pharmaceutical environments and we see excellent synergy in this sector,” explains Andy Hudspith for ISD Solutions.
“Particular attention was needed to ensure a fixing free flush finish to ensure an ultra-clean working environment.”
The project team formed all lighting units and ducting apertures throughout. In addition, there was careful planning of recessed electrical sockets and conduit runs formed within the panel insulation.
