Facility Design


Facility Design

We specialise in a fully integrated facility design service to deliver equipment, buildings and laboratories for the pharma, biotech, medtech, fine chemicals and energy sectors. With two decades of project experience, we are proud of our long-term client relationships, meeting their needs on time and within budget.

From pilot scale to production scale facilities, together with complex modelling of process skids and superskids, we combine the latest 3D modelling techniques in pipework and architectural design, with the latest tools such as virtual reality walkthroughs and laser scanning. This process ensures we provide safe, constructible plant designs which optimise the transfer to construction site.
