The facility was built within an existing shell and comprises of Grade C Compounding Rooms housing - 10 isolators each with rapid gassing facility using VHP. The surrounding areas to support the Compounding areas, designated as grade D were: Preparation Area, Labels and Documentation Area, Change Facilities, etc.

The works undertaken for Baxter Healthcare included all aspects of the project from Structural Assessments, Planning permission, building control compliance, HVAC, Electrical and Civil works design, installation, commissioning and validation.
