State-Of-The-Art Aseptic Manufacturing Facility Wins At The Constructing Excellence North East Awards

BakerHicks, the multidisciplinary design and engineering company, is celebrating the success of one of its major pharmaceutical projects, the GSK Aseptic Manufacturing Facility, at the 2018 Constructing Excellence North East (CENE) Awards. GSK won the Client of the Year category for the project, which was also a finalist in both the Offsite Project and Safety & Wellbeing categories.
The new-build project at Barnard Castle will provide state-of-the-art facilities for the aseptic filling of vials and syringes, and handling of cold chain products, securing the future of aseptic liquid filling operations at the site. BakerHicks completed the scheme design phase and is the lead designer for the delivery phase, working alongside the GSK Engineering team, SES Engineering Services, Star Refrigeration, Turner & Townsend, Daldrop and McLaughlin & Harvey.
A central element to the success of this large and complex project is GSK’s integrated project delivery (IPD) approach. This has seen a high degree of collaboration between everyone involved in delivering the project, leading to efficiencies and minimising risk. As part of this approach, BakerHicks is continuing to provide support and technical advice throughout construction stage with a dedicated lead designer and Building Information Modelling (BIM) manager based on site. This allows the company to use its experience and knowledge of designing facilities of this type to support and challenge the other IPD partners on the project to achieve the best solution.
BIM is being used to coordinate the project as well as providing digital asset management, supporting GSK’s IPD philosophy. BakerHicks manages one central, fully coordinated model which integrates models from various separate design packages and specialist equipment providers to inform the construction of the facility. This not only ensures the integration of the multi-disciplinary design but also allows the team to quickly and proactively detect and resolve any clashes and respond to any on-site questions on construction and installation.
Tom Dickinson, head of project management at BakerHicks says: “GSK is a highly innovative client who isn’t afraid to push the boundaries to drive better project delivery and this is a fantastic example of what that approach can achieve. For instance, the level of BIM integration on a project of this type is unprecedented. Making full use of this technology in this way allows for the coordination of the team and design across what is a large scale and highly complex project. It’s this industry leading approach to the project which makes GSK thoroughly deserving of the CENE Client of the Year award.”
BakerHicks have provided multi-disciplinary scheme and detailed design and management services for the aseptic manufacturing facility.


Rhodar Rebrands To Bring ‘One-Stop’ Solution To Market As A Major Force In Specialist Enabling Works

K’s leading asbestos removal company brings demolition and land remediation services into core business
Rhodar, one of the UK’s leading asbestos removal companies, has launched its new brand, formally showcasing its ability to provide an end-to-end specialist enabling works solution for the construction industry.
Founded in 1976, Rhodar launches its new brand after growing to become one of the UK’s largest asbestos removal providers.
Now offering demolition and land remediation to complement its established asbestos removal services, Rhodar is able to provide a totally integrated works package for its clients.
Turnover this year is projected to be £48 million, with a growing workforce of over 500 professionals operating from 12 strategically located facilities across the UK.
Rhodar’s client base includes NHS trusts, transport infrastructure providers, schools, universities, housing, nuclear, MoD and the wider construction industry.
This strategic move began with the process of integrating demolition specialist Bagnall UK into Rhodar in late 2016, having worked hand-in-hand on projects for over 10 years within the Lexia Solutions Group. The evolution of the business continued last year with the establishment of a new remediation division with global expertise, unlocking further growth potential.
Jason Davy, managing director, Rhodar, commented: “Rhodar is a team of innovators and we are always looking to challenge standard practice to find new and efficient ways of delivering projects. Each of our three service disciplines has a strong reputation and track record in their specialist field.
We’re proud to deliver an unrivalled and sustainable customer journey and are very excited to be formalising and amalgamating our expertise under the new Rhodar brand, continuing our evolution to deliver effective solutions for our customers.”
Rhodar was recently recognised as a finalist in the 2018 Construction News Specialist Contractor Awards and was named winner in the 2018 UKRIA (UK Rail Industry Awards) in the ‘Outstanding Projects’ (under £3million) category for their innovative, unique project for Great Western Railways (GWR).
As part of the brand roll-out, which is expected to take a number of months to complete, Rhodar has produced a new video to showcase its expanded capabilities.
