IDEC SANTE working with ROCAL on planning a new laboratory in Paris


25 June 2019

IDEC SANTE, the expert in the design and construction of turnkey projects  for those involved in the Health, Life Sciences and Cosmetics sectors, is working alongside ROCAL, a subsidiary of the LEHNING Group on the layout of a homeopathic laboratory. This 1200 square metre project carried out on the sixth floor of a block in Paris will require six months of work.

Another project for the LEHNING GROUP


ROCAL, a subsidiary of the LEHNING Group specialising in the manufacture of homeopathic products, has entrusted the teams from IDEC SANTE with the design and planning of a production laboratory. This new project is the second time IDEC SANTE and the LEHNING Group have worked together after their first big project on the firm’s historic site  in Eastern France, which involved an extension and the reorganisation of more than 7000 m².

Planning for 1200 m² of laboratories


This latest project awarded by ROCAL to IDEC SANTE aims to transfer the business currently carried out on the eighth floor of a block in Paris to the sixth floor. That involves the complete reorganisation of the 1200 m² space to transform it into a production laboratory including a 230 m² hazardous area, storage and packaging unit, offices and staff rooms.

Turnkey support


IDEC SANTE worked with its client from the birth of the project offering a made to measure solution. After discussions aimed at ensuring all ROCAL’s industrial requirements were met, IDEC SANTE focused on detailed design work for the space to try to find the best possible organisation for the various flows of raw materials, staff and finished products. Its building teams will then manage the construction of the project including the commissioning, which is due to take place in early September.

6 months of work


It will take 6 months of work to plan the layout for these 1200 m². Special measures will be needed to carry out this construction work in the heart of a listed building, where the other floors will, remain occupied. In the end, this new laboratory will include an administrative section, a reception area and storage area for raw materials and packaging and a large production area. The project is due to be completed in early 2020.
