Science Technology Manufacturing

Helping Science and Manufacturing at every stage of evolution

Our service /

Starting with the end in mind, we put your scientific aims first, understand your stakeholder structure and develop bespoke processes to suit that accordingly.
We have a proven approach to leading projects in Science, Technology + Manufacturing sector and it all begins with understanding the science behind the business, the product and the end client.

The ecosystem is a complex one and as such each project should not be isolated in design and project management. Instead, targeted and specialised input is often required to help define
some elements of the project – from equipment selection to regulatory approvals.

We help our clients navigate to a successful project outcome.

Through the in-depth understanding of programming, masterplanning, process and procurement, we challenge the team to produce an optimal, efficient and innovative design, aligned
to your corporate and scientific targets.

EEDN in Science + Technology

We have experience across the design, project and programme management and business processes development with some of the most technologically advanced clients in the biotech and manufacturing sphere and have worked across:
  • GMP manufacturing facilities
  • Cell and Gene Therapy facilities
  • Cleanroom laboratories
  • Manufacturing and packaging facilities


With 2020 being a year where Health Care providers helped the world through a pandemic, there is understandably a need for managing the capital expenditure of these organisations. At EEDN, we understand the healthcare systems, how they works and have access to some world-leading experts to do so.
  • Access to worldwide pool of experts
  • Project and programme management
  • Strategic and business case implementation
  • Pre-Stage 0 brief analysis
  • Stakeholder Engagement

Client Representative

Supporting your endeavours throughout the development journey.

We complement our strong understanding of the development process of the physical asset to aid you with executive assistance as the Client Representative.

From developing the Standard Operational Procedures for best practice early on, through to assisting the Board to making long term decisions, we get an intimate insight into your company, allowing us to ensure that we steer the focus to maximise project benefits.

We represent you in decision-making with a pre-agreed level of authority.

This allows us to put together the Project Management Office (PMO) and manage internal and external consultants in line with your internal procedures, strategy and KPIs.

With our experience in assisting start -up, emerging and scale-up companies in their physical asset lifecycle, we are uniquely placed to help you assemble the team, ensuring that all decisions are aligned with the strategy.

Supporting C-suite and board-level decision-making in driving, growing and transforming the SciTech and manufacturing business.

Project Management

Embedding the right behaviours from the outset is crucial when the technical and commercial realities of the project test the intentions.

We focus on innovative techniques that promote surety and accuracy of reporting together with control of the processes:
  • Collaboration and communication
  • Knowledge Management
  • Innovation
  • Controls
  • Governance

Design Leadership

Proactively ensuring alignment of all aspects of design back to the business ase and corporate objectives.

The process of controlling the design process and outcome is paramount in the delivery of complex science projects. At EEDN we take design
leadership to the next level, way beyond design controls and into alignment of design with the rest of the business functions, the masterplan and the
project objectives.

Our robust quality control process has been trialled and tested and together with our stakeholder engagement process sets the expectations from the outset.

We actively promote our teams to use the latest digital design tools to allow for 3D coordination prior to physical construction, thereby identifying issues early and resolving them ahead of time.

Fostering an environment of sharing and innovation, supporting knowledge sharing.

Through a robust responsibility matrix we develop an exhaustive list of all the project deliverables and inputs, not just for design but also from a stakeholder input perspective, keeping the team focused.

Briefing and pre-stage 0 feasibility

Pre-Stage 0 is the valuation of a business case from first principles.

When reviewing the history of complex building sectors such as SciTech and Healthcare we encounter numerous examples of spaces requiring
refurbishment or even repurposing shortly after occupancy. Why is this the case?

Short-term planning

Organisations are reacting to immediate and near future needs, pressure points and funding streams. Time frames for the design and execution of heavily serviced buildings and the speed of technological evolution tend to be ignored.

The utilitarian nature of the space is also neglected and the question of 'what it will be in five to ten years’ time?' is missed, rushing to push projects into the
'Built Box'.

Introducing a new level of future-gazing

The pre-stage zero (referring to RIBA Stages) is an organisational inward-looking process. This stage is not about the building but about the distillation of the targets, drivers and aspirations of the project.

EEDN tailor expert teams to support organisations in assessing their drivers.

We believe the conversation should be as pluralistic as possible. It should represent a convergence of disciplines that will supplement the
core organisational expertise.

The pre stage zero process must be of strategic importance. The deep-dive evaluation of aspirations leads to an uninhibited view into the
mid- to long-term future.

It provides an alignment of the existing strengths as well as future needs. Most of all, it’s a view which is constantly evolving. The pre-stage zero
process validates the business case and will define whether a building project is necessary or whether its typologies are relevant.

Once committed to a project, we believe in reviewing the strategic decisions at agreed project milestones, minimising unplanned post-occupancy updates.

We believe in simple and adaptable design where decision making is based purely on organisational drivers such as product.

Our Services to the industry

The COVID-19 pandemic forced a major paradigm shift in the Science, Technology + Manufacturing industries with a full throttle from the pharma, BioTech and healthcare sectors, all working in collaboration to deliver the necessary solutions.

Our extensive knowledge has allowed us to understand the insights on how the built assets are used and how projects need to be set up for success. We offer a tailored solution to each of our clients across the programme and project management, and design management spectrum.

We want to be part of the change in the Science, Technology and Manufacturing, offering a number of services depending on the projects:
  • Project and Programme Management
  • Owner's Representation
  • Project Controls
  • Design Management
  • Project MOT
  • Programme Schedule management

What our clients say /

EEDN has been a great team. They undertook a high level schematic and massing study to test our site capacity to support The London Cancer Hub, the Council's most strategically important scheme - a State of the Art Life Science Campus for the London Borough Of Sutton. The EEDN master planning team came to grips with the complexities of the site and understood the value of the key partners as stakeholders in delivering the LCH. Their expertise and detailed knowledge of the life science space combined  with a highly professional responsive approach produced a great result.
