DSP (Interiors) Ltd Complete Project for Surescreen Diagnostics
By: DSP Interiors
Over the past 18 months, the company, which is based on the Parker Industrial Estate on Mansfield Road in Derby, has partnered with SureScreen Diagnostics to support their expansion with the completion of a range of fit-out projects across Derby and Nottingham.
SureScreen remains at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19, producing antibody and antigen tests, which have been exported to 53 countries across the world. With more than 25 years' experience in rapid diagnostic test products, SureScreen was the sole UK manufacturer to be validated by Public Health England during the Pandemic.
This growing demand and product development, which includes the recently approved dual Covid and Flu test, has perpetuated the need to expand facilities.
In 2021, SureScreen announced its expansion to a new production facility at Lucinda House at Sherwood Business Park in Annesley, Nottinghamshire following an order for tens of millions of antigen Covid-19 tests from the Government, which created 1,000 local jobs.
DSP (Interiors) Ltd was appointed principal designer and contractor to fulfil staged completion of extensive turnkey works at the facility, which is the largest in Europe.
Work undertaken as part of phases one and two has involved transforming the original warehouse which housed a small office, amenity block, mezzanine level and a large logistics space into a state-of-the-
The existing amenity block was completely gutted and fitted out to accommodate new staff including underground drainage, toilets, and showers.
Work has also involved the installation of a new circa 31,500 sq. ft mezzanine floor to extend the production and packing space.
DSP (Interiors) Ltd undertook all associated works including partitions, ceilings, flooring, and bespoke joinery, along with mechanical, electrical, fire protection measures and plumbing works including specialist dehumidification ducting for the machinery and upgrades to the mains electrical systems.
Speaking about their partnership with SureScreen Diagnostics, Andy Priestley, director of DSP (Interiors) Ltd Derby, said:
"We are delighted to have completed phases one and two at Lucinda House at Sherwood 80 for SureScreen Diagnostics on schedule and on budget.
"SureScreen Diagnostics do incredible work, and we are happy to have delivered a state-of-the-
"As principal designer, DSP (Interiors) Ltd have been heavily involved in designing the spaces to accommodate the ever-changing needs of the production and packing workflow.
"We are excited to be working on phases three and four of the project and look forward to continuing the strong partnership with SureScreen Diagnostics."
