Keep up to date with the construction of our £55m large-scale GMP manufacturing centre currently under construction in Stevenage.
Final commissioning is now taking place and the centre is almost ready for the first collaborators.
Corridors and cleanrooms are now almost complete. Utility pannels are also installed in the cleanrooms ready for the first collaborators.
The centre's interiour is really coming along and you can now see the final finishes. Photos show clean rooms including utility pannels and air vents and also the back of a utility panel.
Communal area's begin to take shape. Photos show QC lab, wet plant room and offices.
Construction continues on both the interiour and exterior of the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult manufacturing centre. Photos here show the north view of the centre, what will become office space and one of the clean rooms.
All major plant items are now in position, with cleanrooms constructed and flooring in progress. Photos are taken from roof level, intersticial area and IT room.
Plant equipment continues to be installed at the manufacturing centre. Here we can see the GRP weatherproof housings for roof top electrical and control equipment, the main water systems pump ‘skids’ for heating and chilled water services and the air handling plant of the centre roof.
The interior spaces of the centre begin to materialise while the main air handling plant is now located on the centre roof.
With the exterior of the centre nearing completion, work continues on interior fittings.
The final look of the manufacturing centre is beginning to materialise both internally and externally. Final layer of equitone cladding is added to the exterior and interior walls begin to define the clean room spaces.
