Since 1998 ADG have been providing Becton Dickinson (BD) with architectural input to support itís ongoing maintenance and development programme at the Plymouth site and more recently at the Swindon arm of the company, totaling approximately four million pounds worth of investment. BD is a multi-national, precision manufacturing company specialising in the production of pharmaceutical supplies and medical devices.
Recent work at Plymouth has included internal feasibility studies to re-configure itís manufacturing areas, alterations to the staff canteen and internal remodeling of class 100,000 clean room areas. More recently ADG designed an extension to the warehouse to accommodate a new Cobalt Inadiator facility, totalling approximately £8 million of further investment. ADG have therefore developed a good understanding of the manufacturing processes, which has been essential in the development of option appraisals.
