PHARMADEC WORKING ALONGSIDE OPHTALMIC COMPAGNIE ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF THEIR NEW LENS SURFACING LABORATORY IN VILLEPINTE (SEINE SAINT DENIS)
5 July 2018
PHARMADEC, the designer and builder of turnkey projects for those involved in the life sciences and well-being, will be working alongside OPHTALMIC COMPAGNIE on the construction of a lens surfacing laboratory. This highly technical project to be set up at the firm’s current premises in Villepinte (Seine-Saint-Denis) will require five months of work.
A 792 m² lens surfacing laboratory
In its five fields of activity, OPHTALMIC COMPAGNIE, which specialises in optical products and services, offers a global solution to health professionals and patients. Developing contact lenses and distributing lenses, the leader has positioned itself as a leading player in eye health. In order to develop its lens surfacing business, OPHTALMIC COMPAGNIE is setting up a new laboratory, the construction of which has been entirely entrusted to PHARMADEC.
A tight schedule
The PHARMADEC teams proved themselves to be very responsive and willing to listen to their client in order to come up with this construction project in a tight schedule. Thanks to its knowledge of what is required to avoid contamination, manage flows and find the optimum way of installing the equipment, PHARMADEC came up with a made to measure solution based around the tasks involved in surfacing lenses. Its teams are now busy on the preparation of the construction phase, which is due to begin next month to allow OPHTALMIC COMPAGNIE to launch this new business in November.
A highly technical project
This project stands out because of the technical constraints, which need to be considered to fulfil the requirements of OPHTALMIC COMPAGNIE’s business in the future. This project built on an existing site, adopts the box in a box concept, close to that which exists in the pharmaceutical sector, which the PHARMADEC teams are used to dealing with. The similarity with that field of activity can be seen with this lens surfacing laboratory with all its clean rooms, grey areas, special fluids (ionised water, nitrogen generator) and the integration of all the equipment (around forty machines).
