GMP Facility Design

How do you transform your production requirements into a modern GMP-compliant manufacturing facility? Our process and facility engineers do it every day. All we need is a preliminary manufacturing method and a production volume, either as a preliminary batch size or a sales forecast.

Using modern design tools and the industry’s sharpest brains, we bring your product from idea to a GMP-compliant facility design. KeyPlants’ experienced in-house process architects can bring you on a journey starting from feasibility studies and site master planning, through conceptual and basic engineering, to a fully-detailed construction documentation package.

Our projects cover refurbishment and upgrades of existing facilities, to complete greenfield projects designed for conventional construction or modular off-site construction technology.
