Pharmaceuticals – Health

This sector enables us to fully mobilize our teams on innovative projects, on areas of expertise already tested by our energy customers, and on the associated infrastructure. Process engineering, risk management, and project management skills are areas of expertise that also apply here.


The pharmaceutical industry is changing and therefore needs to be at the forefront of innovation, develop its business lines at high-speed and identify tomorrow’s therapeutic needs. The future will increasingly belong to manufacturers able to give their products added value, offer complex therapeutic benefits, and incorporate pricing in the product development stage.

All design stages are consequently optimized.

In this context, Sofren is involved in several innovative projects: upgrades, renovations, expansions, as well as decommissioning projects. Sofren gets involved and works with major customers in this area in order to become the benchmark of the future. Among these types of these projects Sofren has conducted studies for a new blood treatment laboratory for a world leader.

This major project consisted of studying a production unit comprising:

  • A unit for thawing plasma bags
  • A manufacturing unit
  • An expansion to the existing unit

The project involved work such as:

  • Developing a new transfer area

    • Creating an unloading pad
    • Removing asbestos and their components from existing buildings
    • A cold room for thawing
    • 1500m² of clean rooms for thawing and manufacturing
    • All roads and underground networks
