Competition: Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre

Glasgow Airport
  • Comment

The UK’s Centre for Process Innovation is seeking an architect to design a £28 million pharmaceuticals complex on the outskirts of Glasgow

The team chosen for the estimated £300,000 contract will design and deliver a Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC) on a 1.6ha plot immediately to the east of Glasgow Airport.

The 4,600m² project, due to complete in 2021, is part of the 81ha Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland proposed for land next to the busy airport and set to open in 2020. The facility aims to boost the UK’s pharmaceutical industry by identifying a new generation of manufacturing processes.

According to the brief: ‘The centre will ensure the UK is a technology and innovation leader in small molecule pharmaceutical and fine chemical manufacturing, thereby boosting the competitiveness of both sectors. Pharmaceutical companies are investing millions in an attempt to speed up manufacturing processes, reducing waste and cost, and future medicines will also require innovative manufacturing technologies.

‘With a collaborative innovation culture and state-of-the art facilities, the new Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre will develop highly efficient and effective technologies. As a flexible and adaptable building, the centre will enable industry, academia, healthcare providers and regulators to work collaboratively to address challenges along the medicines supply chain.’

The Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland is due to feature two flagship complexes: the MMIC along with a £65 million National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland. The MMIC will occupy a 1.6ha plot with a 6.3ha area earmarked for future expansion.

The facility will focus on developing, testing and demonstrating new pharmaceutical manufacturing technologies. The building will feature several processing areas and ancillary spaces and will be expected to be adaptable and expandable in the long-term.

The deadline for applications is midday, 17 August.
