CREST Make Progress on First Off-Site Construction Cleanroom Contract

Stancold’s Clean Room Envelope Specialist Team have made significant progress as part of a new off-site construction contract in a first of its kind for our team, working with a long-standing client holding notable expertise in this field.

CREST have undertaken responsibility for fit-out of internal panelling for 8 cleanroom modules, completing the initial build within their Northumberland factory, before they were then transported to Glasgow and connected together in a facility spanning 2 floors.

As a new and complex contract with additional factors to consider, our team were embedded within our client’s design meetings from the earliest stages in order to develop a specification that met the demands of the project. This allowed the finer details to be discussed, such as where the modules would be joined once on site, how our construction would remain in place during transportation and where our responsibilities sit in line with other trades involved.

The cleanroom modules have been formed to create virology labs, PCR rooms and amplification areas and utilise Kingspan’s Versatile semi-flush system, complete with semi-flush doors and further Eurobond Firemaster walls between modules to achieve a 60-minute fire rating. Installation details have been upgraded to ensure that they are suitable for transportation.

Stancold’s Clean Room Envelope Specialist Team have been working to our client’s fast-track build programme and were on site within 6 weeks from order. The team worked tirelessly to ensure that the design, material order and installation could be carried out in this timeframe.

Now that the modules have made their way to Glasgow and are connected within the facility, CREST have just one site visit to complete to ensure that everything is in place and undertake additional sealing.

The team have demonstrated adaptability and determination to successfully execute the requirements of this project and we look forward to working on more.
