Ground-breaking contract wins in Qatar and Hong Kong are testament to CRC’s cleanroom design and build experience and expertise
Cleanroom design and build specialist Clean Room Construction (CRC) has broken new ground after being awarded its first contracts for cleanroom projects in Hong Kong and Qatar.
CRC’s involvement in the 'world-beating' Cell Therapy Catapult centre in Guy’s Hospital in London brought it to the attention of China Regenerative Medicine International Limited (CRMI) in Hong Kong through its collaboration with the University of Oxford. CRC has been contracted to produce the detailed design for a cleanroom suite at a new stem cell research facility for CRMI, working alongside consultants eXmoor pharma.
The design for the 2,100m2 facility, which will form part of the China Stem Cell Clinical Applications Centre on the Hong Kong Science Park, is expected to be completed by Christmas.
Over in the Middle East, CRC is starting work this month on building a cleanroom facility for Petrotec in Qatar. This will be used for the assembly and testing of devices for the petrochemical industry. Petrotec supplies equipment and provides related engineering support to the oil and gas industry in Qatar. All supplies and equipment have been shipped out to Qatar in four High Cube containers in advance of the CRC team flying out to carry out the installation.
'These two ground-breaking contract wins in Qatar and Hong Kong are testament to CRC’s cleanroom design and build experience and expertise built up over the last 50 years,' said Steve Lawton, CRC’s Managing Director. 'Our proven track record in engineering world-class facilities for high profile, industry-defining projects is second to none and we are proud to fly the flag for the UK on this international stage.'
