On-site team smooths operations for animal health specialist 

A leading animal health company required an on-site team to handle all their engineering need. This varies from troubleshooting to brownfield and greenfield projects. Having worked for the company for 15 years, we were contracted.

We set up a team covering licensing activities, redesigning electrical infrastructure and investigating a new sterile air handling system for cleanrooms. Our experienced team identifies and solves issues before they create delays.

Feasibility study: in-depth analysis relocation laboratory 

A contract research organisation asked Royal HaskoningDHV to assess the suitability of a proposed new location. The company provides testing and consultancy services to pharmaceutical companies.

A broad analysis was carried out, including whether other possibilities were available. Having identified the viability of the project, preliminary designs were provided. Input from users led to a more detailed and accurate assessment of costs and space, which helped avoid later issues.
