Our client is proud of their forward-thinking approach and early adopters of software such as 3D modelling and BIM. They have a large portfolio of works to date and, over the years, have designed and built facilities that produce cannabinoid medicine, built facilities that produce medicine in Gambia, and even increased capacity for life-giving and lifesaving plasma manufacturing.

In terms of their structure they currently employ 50 staff in the UK, including Project Managers and Cost Managers, with a dedicated Design team also based in the office.
