Life sciences and pharmaceuticals

We understand the complex environments within which our biopharmaceutical and research clients operate in, providing them with the expertise they need to realise their business objectives.

In recent years there has been mounting pressure within the research and biopharmaceutical sectors from regulators, governments, patient groups and related organisations with the common goals of improving compliance, reducing prices and developing new drugs and treatments.

In order to meet these challenges, manufacturers and research organisations have driven wide-scale capital investment programmes to create new, cutting edge facilities and boost production.

The sectors face a complex and diverse range of stakeholders, budgetary pressures and resource constraints, married with the need to compete on an international level for the best researchers, scientists and funding.

“Mace has become an extension of Roche’s team, helping us to achieve our ambitions for the future, both in Europe and North America.”

“From the outset, the team took an actively collaborative stance in relation to both the design team and client team. They identified potential design challenges at a very early stage, and time after time suggested solutions that gave direct benefit to the project.”
