project description:

A 48,000 m2 ultra-modern, precision engineered, biologics plant for which GDCL Consulting provided Civil & Structural Engineering services. At a cost of €350 million the project was delivered at high speed over a short time period meaning the consultant had to be on hand with just in time design solutions across a range of areas. The main building is a complex steel structure accommodating state of the art pharmaceutical processing equipment, with extremely high operating tolerances, feeding back into strict structural engineering design requirements. The site employed 2,000 workers at peak.
