LABORATORY PLANNING

We design the complete laboratory: premises, laboratory furniture , analytical systems as well as the complete utilities supply respectively disposal.

Examples for the laboratory planning
  • Planning and implementation of a new laboratory building incl. laboratory furniture
  • Re-organisation respectively renovation of an existing laboratory
  • Expansion of an existing laboratory
  • Compilation of tender documents for the construction of a new laboratory

From laboratory planning to implementation

The implementation of a project passes through three levels:

  • Preliminary planning
  • Detailed planning
  • Implementation

The preliminary planning gives an overview about the technical feasibility and the cost. It is basis for a decision of general principle either for the implementation or for the cancellation of the undertaking. The detailed planning is the guideline for the subsequent implementation and helps choosing the companies which will be responsible for the delivery and the construction.

Preliminary planning of the laboratory

Basis of the laboratory planning is the assessment of demand, consisting mainly of the analytics and their working process. Herefrom the requirements to the building and the laboratories, relating to floor space, energy supply, utilities supply and air condition and ventilation plants, but also regarding hygiene levels and safety classes, result.

During the preliminary planning, on basis of the assessment of demand, laboratory concepts are compiled. Among technical information, these also include a laboratory layout and a cost estimate.

For the user or investor this can be information about the technical or financial feasibility, which enables him to decide on the continuation of the project.

Pre-condition for the issue of a preliminary planning is that the work flow in the laboratory is largely known. In case this work flow has to be compiled, a laboratory pre-investment study is necessary.

Detailed planning of the laboratory

Most work stations in a laboratory have special requirements regarding floor space, space requirements and utilities supply. Also to be considered are air conditioning regarding air circulation and temperature, the extraction of maybe developing vapors, or just the evacuation of the heat development, as well as air purity and to be observed safety regulations.

Hence a GC-work station differs from a work station with the classical wet chemical analysis, from a work station with physical measuring instrumentation or a work station in the microbiology. Thus almost every work station has to be individually designed.

In the detailed laboratory planning this is realized: each work station will be completely designed to the last detail. In addition to a detailed technical description, 2D and 3D drawings will be issued. Likewise a visualization or a work station animation can be created.

A further step in the detailed planning is the elaboration of neutral tender documents.

Implementation of the laboratory project

The implementation of a laboratory project starts with the dispatch of the tender documents and the check of the incoming offers. THIEMT supports the user respectively investor with the contract placing and defines the performance limits. Afterwards the implementation of the project proceeds with the object surveillance as well as the supervision of the object and the documentation in capacity of the project management.

After the planning some customers also want THIEMT to carry out the project. So according to requirements of the project and the customer, we sometimes act as a planner and project manager and sometimes as an executing supplier incl. installation as well.

Example: Planning and implementation of a new laboratory building incl. laboratory facility
You are planning a new laboratory, maybe with a new building; you are laboratory user and are well versed in the analytics. The ongoing day-to-day business does not allow you to attend to the planning and implementation hundred per cent: You need someone to issue concepts for the building and the laboratory rooms, who issues and checks investment budgets and financing options, who finally plans the project in detail and who attends to the implementation as a consultant respectively project manager or who acts as a general contractor. Someone, who takes care of everything from the idea to the final implementation.

Example: Compilation of tender documents for the building of a laboratory
A new laboratory is to be planned and for the implementation the tender documents are to be compiled. For this you look for an independent engineering office, which conducts a basic evaluation, issues a concept as well as a detailed planning. The planning and documents comprise the process flow (analytics), the needed laboratory equipment as well as the laboratory furniture, the utilities supply, balance of energy, the concept for the rooms/building. Based on these preliminary planning (FEED – Front End Engineering Design) the tender documents are to be compiled. The engineering office is to assess obtained offers and is to support the choosing of the suppliers/service providers.

Example: Construction of a new production facility incl. production control laboratory
You, as an investor or on behalf of a plant manufacturer are planning a new production facility that is to include a production control laboratory. You have the know-how and the potential to plan and construct a new production facility; you also know which analysis data have to be provided for the production. However you have never before implemented a laboratory and you do not know the detailed processes of the analytics. For this reason you look for a system supplier with the technological know-how, to plan and supply the quality assurance as a filigree sub-lot, with a comparatively low capital spending proportion of 1 per mille to 5 percent. Beyond this, the analytics processes are to be planned and integrated into the routine work flow – for this the projects will be attended to over a longer period; technological know-how will be transferred and the new lab assistants will be trained.
