An established global pharmaceutical company with a base in Cork, Ireland, contracted Ardmac to install over 6,500 square metres of ISO 6, 7, and 8 cleanroom facilities. The project included flush wall systems, cold rooms, stainless steel platforms, automated door systems, and a working platform ceiling system along with the associated secondary steel structures.
Our team used BIM modelling to create a complete design for the cleanroom. This helped to visualise, plan, and validate the design prior to construction, and to keep to the aggressive 12-month schedule. Service clashes were eliminated and all services operated around each other seamlessly. The design was completed a few months ahead of the project moving on-site. This allowed us to identify the site team early in the process.
Our initial task was to erect fire walls that encapsulated the clean space, and to install the ceiling suspension rods. This mitigated the safety risks associated with working in and around services at a
high level. The robust ceiling provided a safe working platform for the multiple service contractors to install their works in parallel to the cleanroom installation beneath.
We delivered the project with a zero-incident safety record. The final cleanroom included 2,000 linear metres of flush partitioning systems, 6,500 square metres of working platform ceiling, 6,300 square metres of epoxy and vinyl flooring, doorsets and interlocks, lights, terminal filter housings, associated secondary steel structures, cold rooms, stainless steel platforms, bump rails, corner guards, and stairs.
