Compliant Facilities

We have developed a host of regulatory compliant products for various facilities in the life sciences sector – from research and development laboratories and cGMP cleanrooms to the most complex manufacturing plants. 


Our growing client portfolio includes AstraZeneca, GSK, Bio-Products Laboratory, Fujifilm Diosynth, Cambridge Pharma and Perrigo. Norwood have also been awarded a contract to provide a bespoke cleanroom system for the new Vaccine Manufacturing Innovation Centre in Oxford.

We encourage our clients to work with us from the earliest design stages. By managing the process together environmental factors, security, fire protection, and utilities can be incorporated into every partition solution. Thereby optimising space, functionality, budget, and aesthetic appeal, whilst reducing costs, disruption and downtime for renovations and improvements.

Why Choose Us


Regulatory Compliance

Our pre-assembled system has been developed and extensively tested to meet the stringent regulatory standards, including cGMP, ISO, MHRA and FDA. 


Fast and Future Ready

The pre-manufactured partition system accelerates schedules and enables the new spaces to be easily remodelled and repurposed reducing costs and downtime. 


Ease of Maintenance

Our removable panels allow a quick access to the wall cavity. The products are made from high quality and durable materials enabling the walls to be easily cleaned. 


AstraZeneca, The Global Packing Centre (GPC), GMP Grade D Packing Cells

The project comprised the manufacture, supply and installation of a new 8000m2 footprint of a highly specified Packing Facility. The brief was to provide nine GMP Grade D packing cells, each of which required strict temperature, humidity and pressure control to enable primary packing of pharmaceuticals in a clean environment with no risk of contamination. Each of these Primary Packing cells connects to a common, secondary packing area. To meet the project specification and environmental requirements, Norwood proposed our 100mm Mediline Partition. Following a rigorous selection process, our solution was a preferred option over four alternative systems. Working closely with the client’s team and the main contractor, we designed and developed bespoke solutions such as Flush Coving, Fire Rated Vision Panels, Bulkheads and Half Height partitioning. Cleanability has been ensured through the hygienic finish of the partition panels and, in particular, by incorporating recessed radiused coving at ceiling to wall joints providing a smooth clean finish throughout the room. Our innovative acoustic ceiling combines hygienic, wipeable, sound absorbing materials and cleanroom grade panels which not only reduce environmental noise levels but also provide cleanable airtight surfaces. Within the open plan secondary area, partial height glazed partitioning was employed. The facility was built with future adaptability in mind and the possibility of increasing the cleanrooms to Grade C, therefore the Norwood Flush Coving was utilised in the spinal corridor and primary cells. Supplying over 7000m2 of ceilings and 6000m2 of partitioning, this was one of Norwood’s largest projects, delivered to an extremely challenging programme.
