M+W secured the £105m main contract in July for the pharmaceutical giant’s new facility. Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick has been brought in for works including the installation of a new ventilation system, small power and lighting systems, fire and intruder alarms and a building management system.

RB, formerly Reckitt Benckiser, has been in Hull since 1840. The new 13,000 m2 building will house a ‘good manufacturing practice’ (GMP) healthcare development facility for the Dettol-to-Durex conglomerate.

Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick managing director Simon Lafferty said: “This facility will be a flagship building and will allow us to showcase our wide range of mechanical and electrical expertise, including our design team’s knowledge of hi-tech and process sectors. We have collaborated with M+W Group to produce a joint BIM strategy, as well as detailed programme and commissioning plans to facilitate their needs both in the construction phase and beyond.”
