Life Sciences & Manufacturing

Delivering the most creative minds

BakerHicks’ Life Sciences and Manufacturing teams work with global brands to deliver some of the most demanding and complex ‘first of its kind’ projects.  

We bring new thinking to R&D design, combining industry leading knowledge and experience to deliver complete project solutions.


With over 400 specialist designers and engineers we deliver a fully integrated service in the UK and overseas.

Our portfolio for world leading brands includes projects in biotechnology and R&D, award winning laboratories, advanced manufacturing technology facilities and low-carbon factories of the future.

Renowned for their expert knowledge and capability, our multidisciplinary teams understand operational and legislative needs, applying industry leading ideas from some of the best mind in their field - architects, civil and structural, building services, process engineers and project managers.


We provide a complete project delivery service, working alongside clients through all phases of the project lifecycle.  From process development consultancy to decommissioning, our full lifecycle capability means we consider operational issues early in the design.

We understand the physical and operational requirements for all levels of biosafety containment, and we have in-house specialist lab planners.

We specialise in more complicated projects and complex environments, especially for the life sciences and manufacturing sector where we work with pharmaceutical companies with their own stringent safety and compliance requirements.

And, with over 60 years’ experience, we are proud of our long-term client relationships, where historic knowledge, experience and trust come together to forge strong partnerships.
