Research and development
successful across industries.
Tomorrow’s innovations and ideas need space to develop. But the requirements for this space can differ even within a single university faculty. When reviewing the entire research, science and development universe, planners see a challenging multitude of concepts. After all, these buildings are among the most sophisticated construction projects. But science does not end with building construction, and projects are not solely implemented above ground. Sites such as the Geneva LHC particle accelerator CERN exemplify the complexity of below-ground engineering and architecture.
Integrating the technical and spatial requirements requires intense collaboration throughout the process. Providing enough spare spaces for future development is equally essential, especially in research and laboratory buildings. We have been supporting projects of this type successfully for many years. From individual laboratory buildings to entire research campuses or a new automotive test track – we are the right partners for you.
Apart from BIM project implementation, model-based quality assurance of project results and BIM process control, our past projects involved the following challenges:
- How can BIM data be used for simulating user requirements?
- What are the information requirements associated with interior equipment (such as test stands) and mitigation of external influential factors (such as vibration) when planning the building?
- What are the requirements associated with planning for cleanrooms, and how should they be accounted for in the model?
- What are the key roles in a BIM process when the share of resources dedicated to technical equipment is greater than that dedicated to the actual building?
- How can the BIM method support coordination with scientists/users, and how can the requirements be incorporated into the project in a traceable manner?
- How can I safely ensure compatibility between the lab or technical equipment and the planning of the building, and is BIM compatible with inventory planning?
- How can frequent remodelling projects within a property be incorporated into a BIM process, and how can the relevant as-built data be kept current at all times?
