Bouygues Energies & Services are going to be exhibiting at IBioIC’s 7th Annual Conference on the 10th – 11th February 2021.
IBioIC is a networking and support organisation that connects industry, academia and government to bring biotechnology processes and products to the global market.
They were established in 2014 to fulfil the aims of the National Plan for Industrial Biotechnology to grow the industrial biotechnology sector in Scotland to over £900 million in turnover, with over 200 companies operating in the sector by 2025.
Earlier this week we spoke to Jo Adams, our lead Interior Designer, about what her role at Bouygues Energies & Services means to her.

Stem Cell Research Centre
The Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine (SCRM) is a stem cell research centre at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, dedicated to the study and development of new regenerative treatments for human diseases. Their facility contains laboratory and support space, incubator units and a clinical translation unit containing high grade GMP cleanrooms, which facilitate the receipt of embryos from IVF clinics.
SCRM is the first large-scale, purpose-built facility of its kind in the UK, including provisions for EU GMP Grade B, C and D areas, with local Grade A environment in Isolators and MBSCs. The facility required a high level of services through mechanical and electrical plant and as such, the plant was located on a dedicated plant floor, sandwiched by the two research floors
Bouygues Energies & Services were appointed as the turnkey Design & Build partner for the construction of all GMP areas, associated services and clean utility systems.
We designed, installed and commissioned all mechanical, electrical & process specialist services. All equipment and services were designed in order to facilitate access for operability and maintenance, without risking any compromise to the control measures required in GMP environments.
The internal fit-out and integration included the installation of autoclaves, process gas systems and environmental monitoring system, in line with current regulatory requirements, as well as cryostorage facilities and a walk-in cold room.
We provided full compliance and validation support, including the arrangement of a design review meeting with the MHRA. We were also awarded the FM contract for the planned maintenance and revalidation of the GMP areas of the facility.
A single point of contact to boost performance
Providing detailed design, architectural, procurement, construction, installation, process engineering, mechanical & electrical services, commissioning and validation to offer seamless engineering solutions to the challenges facing our client.
Assurance of compliance
We delivered a fully validated facility with successful HTA and MHRA inspections, ensuring maximum reputability for the client. SCRM is also the first laboratory building in Scotland to receive a BREEAM “Excellent” rating.
Value for money
Bouygues Energies & Services’ holistic approach meant that sub-contracting and external sourcing costs were minimised, as we took ownership of budget and cost overruns. It also meant we were able to deliver the project within a smaller time frame than competitors, ensuring the project was completed to time and economic constraints.
Knowledge and experience
Our knowledge of the facility has enabled us to provide a fully compliant FM package for the client, minimising the need for outsourcing a FM provider. Our service includes the requirements for facility revalidation, taking responsibility for compliance so that SCRM don’t have to.
Importance of including validation from an early stage
Validation is a regulatory requirement for all GMP cleanrooms to ensure the facility is completed to the required standards and is safe for its intended use.
Bouygues Energies & Services have vast experience in validation of cleanrooms, HVAC Systems and High Purity Utility Systems in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Medical Device and NHS sectors satisfying the client’s user requirement and regulatory requirements of the FDA, MHRA and other applicable regulatory bodies.
What is food sustainability and how can we help?
We live in a world where our natural resources are over exploited and large amounts of food are lost and wasted. Food is at the centre of many environmental issues:
• It’s a significant contributor to climate change
• It’s responsible for almost 60% of biodiversity loss globally
• Farming animals for meat and dairy requires space and huge inputs of water and feed
• Producing meat creates vastly more carbon dioxide than plants such as vegetables, grains and pulses.
