Bio Products Laboratory – Floor Loading Study


Bio Products Laboratory Ltd (BPL) is an organisation which turns blood plasma in to a range of life saving products. It is committed to research and development to maintain a key position in a constantly changing market in the 21st century.


As part of a major capital investment plan, BPL is installing a new Ultrafilter.
A structural survey was required to determine the maximum allowable floor loading within building P327 and the immediate surrounding area at BPL’s Elstree Site.


HFL provided an experienced Structural Engineer to carry out an engineering empirical approach to verify that the floor was capable of supporting the weight of a new Ultrafilter.
The calculation provided was limited to the floor slab which supported three rooms, and determined whether or not the floor slab could support the proposed installation.


With the information provided BPL was able to confidently install the new Ultrafilter without the need for any building modifications.
