Design & Build ISO Class 6 Cleanroom Facility
Project objective: With a requirement to bring in-house a product previously out-sourced, our client, a leading provider of cleanroom garments, consumables and medical devices to the healthcare sector, chose us as Principal Contractor and consultant for a new ISO 6 cleanroom build in Lincolnshire.
The requirement was for an ISO Class 6 / EU GMP Grade C cleanroom facility with a two stage changing facility, interlocked goods-in transfer, temperature control, HEPA filtration, pressure monitoring and night set back capability to maintain a constant condition within the room and ensure energy efficiency.
The process: We were appointed as Principal Contractor to help design and build an ISO class 6 cleanroom facility to enable our client to meet their new requirement within a modern industrial unit.
After extensive surveying of the empty warehouse, we worked with our client over a number of weeks to finalise a design that would ensure a constant condition, high quality standards and a fast turnaround of products in line with ISO 6 class 6 cleanroom requirements. Particular attention was given to pressure monitoring to compensate for pressure fall and increase.
Results: Following successful installation and validation of the new cleanroom facility, our client has benefited from:-
- Lower energy costs due to the night set back facility
- The ability to closely monitor pressure changes with notification of pressure fluctuation
- Reduced costs as outsourcing has been decreased
- Capability to grow the business and meet the growing demands of the industry
