Biotechnology & Regenerative Medicine

Businesses in the biotechnology and regenerative medicine sectors have particular needs: taking lab-scale processes and translating these in to commercial scale production; critically reviewing the current and anticipated requirements of regulatory bodies and translating these in to engineered solutions. 

The unique issue with Biotech and Regen Medicine is that as the science is often brand new, so the solutions to these needs must also be new and innovative, but still based upon sound experience and tried and tested project development methods.  This is where Lorien Engineering Solutions comes in.

We offer design and project management services for manufacturing, research and pilot facilities.  With access to industry expertise in facility design, containment technology, regulatory requirements and validation methods, our approach is one of 'no surprises' when it comes to the design of new processes and facilities.

Involvement of Lorien's expertise at or prior to the start of clinical trials will help to remove many of the hurdles to scale-up and commercialization, and to improve investor and funding body relations.  We have familiarity of working within grant-funded projects via Innovate UK, working on projects in TRL (Technology Readiness Level) 4 to 8.

Our competent staff cover all disciplines - architectural, civil and structural engineers as well as specialist engineering teams for process, chemical, automation, packaging, utilities and mechanical and electrical building services. We have good familiarity of laboratories, cleanrooms, production facilities and support areas.

We take capital investment projects from concept stage through detail design to on-site management and handover.
