With ambitious growth plans, Ipsen Biopharm needed a temporary fix to house scientists and management staff during a four-year project at their Wrexham site. As an addition to the existing scientific facility, the build required specialist heating and cooling systems to ensure optimum temperatures, as well as fire rated windows.
Using 16 modular bays over two-storeys, the facilities provided both temporary office space as well as a security and reception mixed use building.
A speedy two-week site programme ensured that work could begin as soon as possible, giving staff quicker access to the much-needed facilities and workspaces.
An outside decked area along with specially designed quiet areas provided staff with a space to break-out and work uninterrupted during busy periods, as well as an attractive space to spend time away from their desks.
- As a scientific testing and research facility, it was important that the building adhered to specific industry standards
- Due to its close proximity to the existing building, it was essential that our temporary solution exceeded standard fire regulations2
- As a four-year project, a full package of ongoing maintenance and support was required.
By providing additional workspace for researchers and scientists, the temporary build supported Ipsen Biopharm to establish itself as an industry leader in healthcare solutions.
Staff had a bright and airy place to work, with designated breakout spaces and an outside decked area to ensure they could enjoy the fresh air and relax away from their desks.
Continuous maintenance and upkeep of the building ensured high-standards were met for the duration of the project.
