Cryosphere opens up second facility at The Heath Business & Technical Park
On 1st February 2020, Cryosphere Services opened up it's second operations facility for ambient to -80°C storage of biological samples at The Heath Business and Technical Park, in Runcorn. Whilst the ex-ICI site is afforded excellent facilities, and a perfect location just off the M56, it was the highly experienced and proficient on-site Facilities Management and Security team, run by SOG Ltd., that gave Cryosphere Services Board of Directors the peace of mind. Not only would the on-site engineering and safety teams work closely to support our business, but there was a quick and responsive approach for the business to grow on-site. The purpose built renovation of existing laboratories at The Heath were to Cryosphere's exacting requirements.
The SOG team, working closely with Phil Hargreaves, Cryosphere's Chief Operating Officer, designed and built a bespoke facility, with appropriate back up strategies in place, including a specifically sourced automatic generator that took a crane to install and has the capacity to run the electrics for the entire block.
The SOG team not only provide on-site 24/7/365 security, but also coordinate all planned preventative maintenance, as well as providing support to Cryosphere staff for emergency call outs. SOG are now a key partner to Cryosphere, bringing exceptional building management support, alongside security and engineering services.
Cryosphere are excited to be part of the park's journey, especially the future vision of Heath Park has been awarded as a Beacon Project by the Liverpool City Region, which sets out the site to become a model environment for future living including Net Zero Carbon Environment.
