GBD Investments Ltd
The project involved the construction of a specialist pilot plant facility which is to be used in the research and development of new pharmaceutical products.
The scope includes an extension to an existing pharmaceutical facility, including head office where the facility remained operational throughout the construction phases, with close communication required on site with Douglas Pharmaceutical staff.
The predominant operational and logistical challenges to the project were during the early stages of the Covid-19 Level 4 Lockdown in March 2020, which meant that no staff could be on site at this time. Leighs Construction’s Health and Safety plans were updated and constantly monitored throughout the project, following the Ministry of Health protocols to mitigate risk.
