Thomas Halliwell build new R&D centre for Adaptimmune

Adaptimmune is a leading company in the T-cell receptor therapy industry, working tirelessly to develop novel immunotherapy techniques to help patients fight against cancer diagnoses. In an effort to improve their research and development capabilities, Adaptimmune sought to build a bespoke manufacturing facility adjacent to their current premises and, as experts in specialist mechanical and electrical engineering projects, Thomas Halliwell were contracted to deliver a full electrical services package.

Many elements of the design needed to adhere to strict regulations. Staging and quarantine areas, cell processing rooms, cryo-store, and cold store areas needed to be built to a number of precise requirements. Employees needed to be able to fully control these environments. Grade B cleanrooms were also required for the manufacture of allogeneic cell therapy drug products.

The Thomas Halliwell team got to work

They began by removing all irrelevant electrical services and adding a new small power installation and a stand-by generator. New LV distribution switchboards were built, along with all mains and sub main cables.

A general lighting scheme (incorporating both internal and external lights) was designed and installed, and a fully addressable lighting control system was implemented based on DALI lighting control protocols. Emergency lights and accessible WC alarm systems were also incorporated, and the system was fully addressable through a central battery static inverter.

Containment systems were made to house the small power, lighting, and specialist wiring schemes, and a new earthing and bonding system was built to ground the entire structure. Finally, new fibre optic data and communication systems were installed; all backed up by UPS.
