PROjEN Ltd completes another successful project at GSK
PM PROjEN, a specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire is pleased to announce the delivery of yet another successful project at GlaxoSmithKline’s Stevenage R&D Pilot Plant. PROjEN have been providing a professional project management service for GSK since 2002 and been involved in the delivery of over 200 Capital Projects with a value in excess of £100 Million.
The successful ADAPT Laboratory project included the major demolition, remodelling and refit of a redundant process module to provide laboratory facilities over three floors. PROjEN worked closely with the end users to develop the most suitable layouts and then managed the installation of specialist laboratory equipment and multiple trades to provide the service infrastructure required to support all laboratory activities and safety requirements.
PROjEN acted as CDM Principal Contractor and delivered the project within both budget and schedule and equally importantly, with excellent Health & Safety performance to match all preceding projects completed on site. The benefit to the GSK business is an increase in available laboratory area and the ability to cross-fertilise both Laboratory and Pilot Plant working to reduce discovery time in the R&D Supply Chain, without increasing the overall footprint.
Dr Francois Ricard, GSK Technology Platform Leader said “I would like to thank the whole project team for a great job and all the hard work over the last few months in putting the lab and all its components together. At the Lab opening ceremony it was clear to see not only what the lab offers to GSK drugs pipeline in term of new ways of working and innovation but also what good team work and empowerment, can deliver.”
Russ Harvey (GSK Programme Manager) also added “I would like to add my thanks to the PROjEN Project Team for the professional way this technically difficult project was successfully planned and executed.”
PROjEN’s Managing Director, Martin Seabrook comments:
“PROjEN is pleased to have been involved in yet another project at GSK. Over the last 9 years the team has been party to numerous success stories and is regularly marked top in GSK’s table of service providers. Like many projects I know this assignment was difficult but its success was the result of much hard work and commitment. I’m particularly pleased that we maintained the high level of Health and Safety awareness on the projects we manage. Our exceptional Health and Safety record of 10 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards is the result of consistency across a number of sites”.
