"The symbolic digging of the shovel also means that Lithuania is a safe and promising place for a modern production plant. We value not only the neighbourhood of factories, creating high added value in Kaunas FEZ, but also the professionalism and knowledge of Lithuanian specialists. We hope that the new production plant will produce not only medical equipment developed in Lithuania, but also other products of "Esco Laboratories" and "Esco Pharma", – says Evaldas Pečiūnas, representative of "Esco Lifesciences".
A full range of construction consulting services - from ideas, construction management to handing over the keys - is provided by "BE LIVE", which operated under the name "Baltic Engineers" until last year.
Not only storage and office premises will be constructed in a two-story building of production plant of A++ energy class and 7 710 sq.m. area, but also a sports area and a space for exhibitions. Also a wellness room will be offered to employees.
According to Elijas Čivilis, General Director of "Investuok Lietuvoje", the development of "Esco" in Lithuania proves the high level of competences in life sciences in the country.
"The company's choice to establish the only production location in the European Union in Lithuania and to carry out development here proves that we have already reached high standards of talent and skills, which are particularly important for companies operating in the life sciences sector. We hope that Lithuania's partnership with "Esco" will continue to grow and strengthen", – says E. Čivilis.
Aims for sustainability standards
"Esco Lifesciences" production plant will aim for a very good BREEAM sustainability rating, with applied innovations such as life cycle analysis and dynamic energy modelling.
"The sustainability bar for industrial buildings is clearly rising, and sustainability certification is becoming the norm. Together with "Esco Lifesciences", we aim to make the building one of the few of production buildings of new construction that are certified. We overcome this challenge by creating a building from the very ideas, then designing as well as managing the construction process, and even predicting its further life cycle", – says Darius Kvedaras, Director of complex construction consulting company "BE LIVE".
Also ecologists were being consulted while preparing building design. For example, protection of birds from collisions with glass is planned and also the provision of nests and feeders are designed. Piles of rotting wood and stones for small mammals or amphibians shall be installed at the entrances to the building.
