AbbVie is an innovative pharmaceutical company that develops pharmaceutical, nutritional, diagnostic, and medical products for people around the world.  Ardmac were approached to support the conversion of a warehouse into an ISO 7 and 8 cleanroom facility in Sligo, Ireland.

The new  facility was designed to produce medicines to treat thyroid and kidney-related conditions so the cleanroom environment would developed would be critical.

The existing warehouse provided a very congested site with severe space limitations so included all the challenges of working within a live environment.

Works included a full architectural package comprising epoxy floors, modular walls and ceilings, automated and manual doors, gowning and laboratory furniture, and lighting and air distribution.

We worked extremely closely with the consultants and the client on this ISO Class 7 and 8 cleanroom project, and delivered a cleanroom envelope solution with a 2.5kN/m2 ceiling with integrated cable management. Given time and space constraints, this was a challenging project but one where there was a predictable and positive outcome.
