About the project
Coopervision is one of the largest manufacturers of contact lenses in the world. a multi-billion dollar turnover and with production facilities worldwide, the chandlers ford campus produces test runs, specials, and one off batches as well as rigorous testing of products prior to them being approved and ready for mass production.
The facility is a vital part of the validation process before taking products to the market. In fact, so highly valued is the work of the pilot facility it is one of the highest-performing production facilities within the whole group.
Spaceway were called in as they had previously carried out a number of smaller projects very successfully for the pilot facility team. When this much larger project was required to be delivered in a very tight timescale Spaceway stepped up to provide a full design and build service.
The fast track solution enabled deadlines to be met and minimise production downtime.
As a one-stop shop including design it provided confidence in Spaceway that they could successfully deliver all the ideas and visions that the team required.
“Spaceway developed this project with us over a series of meetings and many months.
At the end of this process, we were very happy that we had the correct solution with a fixed budget and timescale which was agreed and delivered on.
The project was built in two specific phases which enabled us to continue with critical production runs without this the project may never have got off the ground.
The project was successfully delivered and finished to a high standard. Off the back of this we will be using Spaceway to refurbish our offices, meeting rooms, break out space and reception spaces.”
