CRC secures multimillion pound pharmaceutical cleanroom contract

Will be responsible for design, build and validation of a new cleanroom for Aspar Pharmaceuticals

Clean Room Construction (CRC) has secured a multimillion pound contract to design and build a new cleanroom facility for specialist pharmaceutical manufacturer, Aspar Pharmaceuticals.

The new 3,800m2 purpose-built facility in St Albans, Hertfordshire will replace Asparís smaller existing tablet manufacturing premises in Colindale, London and will provide Good Manufacturing Practice-compliant facilities. The project also includes 500m2 of office refurbishment.

Kent-based CRC has been appointed as the lead principal contractor with responsibility for the full turnkey design, build, commissioning and validation package and will start work on site next month.

Aspar Pharmaceuticals is a major supplier of analgesics to the pharmacy and grocery sectors across the UK.

CRC Projects Director, Richard Rowe, said: 'Clean Room Construction has a successful track record of engineering and delivering first class cleanroom facilities right across the science and technology sectors. We are delighted to have secured this major pharmaceutical manufacturing contract and we look forward to delivering a facility of which we can all be proud.'
