UPPERTON PHARMA SOLUTIONS, NOTTINGHAM, UK
Upperton Pharma Solutions is an early phase Pharmaceutical Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation (CDMO) with more than twenty-years experience in the development of pharmaceutical dosage forms. They offer their clients an extensive range of services from early feasibility through to dosage form development and clinical trial manufacturing.
The Nottingham site was required to bring together 10 new GMP manufacturing sites, quality control laboratories, dedicated analytical and formulation laboratories with pilot plant facilities. With greater capabilities and the latest technological advancements, Trent Gateway would offer increased efficiency and greater flexibility to accommodate ever-evolving pharmaceutical needs.
MIDDAS worked closely with both the T-Squared Design Team and client to provide a virtual BIM model which included all services, fitted equipment, and user interfaces throughout the complex suite of cleanrooms and support areas. From here MIDDAS modularised the complete facility including walls, ceilings, and the integrated structural steel work required to support the services. Where possible, the modules were kept to standard dimensions, however to ensure a truly modular solution all non-standard size elements were also manufactured off-site ready to assemble. The M100 wall system incorporated the return air ducts, services, and provided the framework to support the MIDDAS beams which supported the walk-on ceilings and services.
“We are delighted with the progress of our Nottingham facility since we first began on this journey in 2023. This build completion is a significant milestone for us and represents our significant growth as a company.”
