Design draft of laboratory buildings

CONCEPT Design draft of a laboratory building
DETAILS Detailed planning for the construction of a laboratory building
SUPERVISION Supervision and attendance during the construction phase

Design draft – survey

The concept of the laboratory building contains the viewing of three components:

  • Technology
  • Design
  • Cost

The orientation follows the basic principle of the definition of the project, the baseline study and the production site analysis incl. terms by the authorities

The technical preliminary planning includes room- and functioning plans, which comply with the workflow and suit the analytical requirements and the requirements on the laboratory scale.

The economical contemplation also comprises a cost estimate and a cost-benefit-analysis.

The design draft allows for the guidelines of the awarding authority and the local conditions; we issue the draft(s) in picture and as a visualized round trip.

Laboratory building – a survey of the preliminary planning

The preliminary planning is subdivided into three work phases:

  • the basic evaluation (1)
  • the preliminary planning (2)
  • the outline planning (3)
The basic evaluation

The basic evaluation consists mainly of the clarification o the assignment of tasks. For this you take stock of the laboratory analytics, the functional sequence and the laboratory organization, the location as well as the wishes of the investors.

The preliminary planning

In the preliminary planning, the results of the basic evaluation and the objective are analysed and a basic planning concept is drawn.

The drafting of the planning concept also comprises the clarification of urbanistic questions and restrictions, as well as the procedure of a preliminary construction request. This includes both, the preliminary survey of the qualification for the approbation by the authorities and the first cost estimates.

In addition a cost-benefit-analysis for the plant and a financing plan will be issued.

At this point the cost finding is determined as a cost estimate with plus/minus 30%.

The outline planning

Here the first graphic design concepts of the preliminary planning will be revised and specified.

The cost estimate will be updated and a complete calculation of cost will be compiled.

At this point the cost finding is determined as a calculation of cost with plus/minus 20%.

So the investor has information which enables him to decide about the realization and the continuance of the project.
