01 / Pharmaceutical

Specialists in designing building services for the Pharmaceutical sector.

Our team of experts is well-versed in the design of cleanrooms and controlled environments, which are critical to maintaining the integrity of pharmaceutical products and preventing contamination.

02 / Cleanroom Systems

Product quality

We know the importance of maintaining a controlled environment in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, where even minor contaminants can have serious consequences for product quality. Our engineers have a deep understanding of the complex regulations and standards governing cleanroom design and construction, and they use this knowledge to develop custom solutions for every individual clients.

We keep in mind that cleanroom systems are designed to be highly efficient and cost-effective, while also meeting the rigorous safety and quality standards required for pharmaceutical manufacturing.

03 / Stakeholders in the Pharmaceutical Sector

Regulatory environment in the pharmaceutical sector

We take pride in our success in working with a variety of stakeholders in the pharmaceutical sector, including pharmaceutical companies, contractors, and regulatory agencies. They understand that successful projects require collaboration and communication between all parties involved, and they work diligently to ensure that all stakeholders are kept informed and involved throughout the process.

We have a deep understanding of the regulatory environment and the unique challenges faced by pharmaceutical companies, and they use this knowledge to develop customized solutions that meet the specific needs of each client. They work closely with contractors to ensure that projects are completed on time and on budget, and they maintain open lines of communication with regulatory agencies to ensure that all projects meet the required standards and regulations.

04 / Building Energy Management Systems

Specialised refrigeration systems for production rooms

Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) are also used to optimize energy efficiency by monitoring and controlling energy-consuming equipment and systems in buildings and industrial facilities. These systems typically use sensors and advanced control algorithms to analyze energy consumption patterns and identify areas where energy waste can be reduced or eliminated. BEMS can be used to optimize HVAC systems, lighting systems, refrigeration systems, and other energy-consuming equipment, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of each facility. The goal of a BEMS is to reduce energy consumption and costs while maintaining or improving the comfort, safety, and productivity of the building occupants or the production processes.

In designing MEP systems, it is crucial to ensure that data logging, recording, and critical alarms are integrated into the system. This is typically achieved through an Energy Management System (EMS) that operates independently of the Building Energy Management System (BEMS). An EMS is a sophisticated monitoring and control system that uses advanced sensors and algorithms to analyze energy consumption patterns, identify areas for improvement, and provide critical alarms to alert operators to potential issues. The EMS provides real-time data on system performance, allowing operators to quickly identify and address any problems that may arise. This level of monitoring and control is essential for maintaining the efficiency and reliability of MEP systems, and for ensuring that any issues are promptly addressed to avoid costly downtime or system failures. By incorporating data logging, recording, and critical alarms into the system design, DSSR is able to provide our clients with the most advanced and reliable MEP systems available, ensuring that their facilities operate at peak performance and efficiency.
