A new specialist laboratory and staff facilities together with additional internal alterations to an existing building for Aeropak, a pharmaceutical production company in Great Yarmouth.
The new building was constructed rapidly, with minimum disruption to the day-to- day production of the laboratory and attached to the existing building in a way that minimised interruption of the existing production facilities.
This was achieved by using an off-site timber frame construction method which also reduced waste to give a more sustainable manufacture. The roof and walls are insulated with shredded newspaper giving very high levels of thermal performance and a particularly green solution with the addition of thermally broken aluminium windows. The building features solar heating of hot water on the roof to pre-heat water for the production processes.
