Norgine Pharmaceuticals, Hengoed

Synopsis

We were commissioned by Kier Construction Ltd to develop an outline design into full construction packages through a Design & Build form of contract.


The Brief

Norgine Ltd invited a series of Contractors for the design and construction of a new Warehouse at their existing factory in Hengoed. Lawray were selected by Kier Construction to support their tender bid which led to the securing the project in mid-2014. The scheme comprised of adjustments to the external circulation, service and delivery areas, the construction of a new temperature monitored warehouse to store raw material, the provision of QC sampling equipment and a link to their existing facility.

Our Solution

Lawray worked alongside their Structural and M&E partners to ensure all Employers Requirements were met whilst providing the most effective solution from an economy and speed of build perspective. We were responsible for ensuring the speedy discharge of all pre-commencement planning conditions due to the short time frames between tender and site start dates. It was imperative to engage early with Building Control to fully understand the Fire Safety Requirements and de-risk any late amendments during the construction phase. The onerous temperature conditions to ensure constant maintained temperatures within the warehouse facility meant careful and efficient detailing around the key elements and a strong importance on coordination with the other professional consultants.

I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to comment on the contribution made by Lawray Architects to the recently completed Combined Services Centre in Llandrindod Wells. As lead consultants on a project with three separate stakeholders, their role was always going to be challenging. I was however, very impressed by the professional manner in which they succeeded not only in delivering a quality final product, but also in balancing with skill and patience the competing demands of their three ‘clients ’throughout both the planning and construction phases of the project. From a Dyfed Powys Police perspective, we were very satisfied with the design solutions offered and the ensuing facilities have received complimentary comments from the occupants
