Pharma Facility Management

Optimum environmental conditions are critical to ensuring the manufacture of quality pharmaceutical products as well as providing a comfortable work environment for operators.

The correct temperature, relative humidity and ventilation need to be maintained to ensure the quality of pharmaceutical products during their manufacture and storage.

Sirus has delivered large and complex BMS projects in the Life Sciences sector over the last 20 years. Clients include Bristol-Myers Squibb, Regeneron, Bausch and Lomb, Sanofi, MSD, Mylan and Amgen.

BMS for Pharmaceutical Plants

Sirus’ comprehensive solution for the pharmaceutical industry enables you to protect people, assets and business processes, and through integrated solutions increase efficiency over your building’s entire life cycle.

We can facilitate the initial requirements, risk assessment and project scope development to determine what needs to be completed and also deliver the capital equipment changes.

We deliver projects to GAMP standards and have experience with Qualified Building Management Systems (QBMS) and non-Qualified Building Management Systems (nQBMS).
