Despite all the doom and gloom of Brexit, pharmaceutical companies are still investing heavily in the UK. In 2017, the total spend on R&D in the UK was £370.9 million and the industry currently employs 73,000 people.
Developing new pharmaceutical construction projects, of course, requires a significant amount of investment, in time as well as money. Working with the right construction company is therefore highly important and one that can certainly influence the success or failure of any particular project.
Not only is the pharmaceutical industry strongly regulated, finding a construction company to work with and understands these restrictions and is still able to deliver in this environment is equally important. There are issues such as the management of regulation and compliance strategies as well as the project management and execution that you would normally expect from an undertaking such as this.
Construction companies that can take a global approach and understand how individual strands of any development fit together, whether it’s a new build or refurbishment, are few and far between.
Hightown Group and Pharmaceutical Construction Projects.
We’re a family-owned business with nearly five decades of experience delivering high quality builds in many sectors across the UK. We’ve been involved in developing and building state of the art facilities for research and development as well as education at Liverpool John Moore’s, including a recent STEM facility refurbishment.
A big part of our success over the last 47 years has been our ability to communicate effectively with stakeholders. Any major construction project involves a partnership between the client and those delivering the construction service. We are able to work with designers and architects or bring our own development team to assist with realising your dreams.
We’re a construction company that is focused on delivering quality while remaining open and transparent with our customers. We’ve worked on some major projects over the years and believe our ability to work closely with all stakeholders is one of the major factors that have driven the company forward over the years.
In addition to making sure that your project is delivered on time and within budget, we are a construction company that has values which many of our clients believe are important. We are a sustainable operation. That means we source sustainable materials and handle waste management in an ethical and eco-friendly way. Any companies that we outsource to or have as suppliers need to share that same ethos.
We’re also a company that believes strongly in health and safety. We often work on projects where the normal everyday running of a business has to continue. That means we are always looking to introduce operational procedures that ensure safety is paramount while disruption is kept down to a minimum.
Hightown Group is ideally suited to pharmaceutical construction projects. Whether your business is looking to refurbish existing facilities or expecting to build a laboratory or manufacturing site from the ground up, our team of construction experts will be able to help you with every stage of the process.
