In 2014, AHP were appointed to act as Architect and Lead Consultant on the refurbishment of the Pharmacy Non-Sterile manufacturing unit and the CIVAS unit at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead.

The Pharmacy Manufacturing Unit produces of a number of  critical clinical products in a combination of Unclassified and Classification D clean environments, including:

  • A non-sterile manufacturing unit (NSP).

  • A terminally sterilised fluids unit.

  • A cytotoxic chemotherapy preparation unit.

  • A centralised intravenous additive service (CIVAS).

  • A clinical trials manufacturing unit.

The project required extensive MEP services provision integrated into confined spaces within a live hospital environment, supplied by a combination of enclosed and external mechanical plant – all demanding careful and continuous coordination before and throughout construction.
