2. 3D BIM

3D BIM goes beyond conventional blueprints by forming a digital duplicate of your entire laboratory, encompassing every piece of equipment, wall, and fixture. This technology provides numerous advantages, especially in the realm of designing adaptable and collaborative laboratories.

Benefits of 3D BIM

Enhanced Design Flexibility: With 3D BIM, lab personnel can rapidly and effortlessly explore different design alternatives. If a new instrument needs to be integrated, all it takes is adjusting the virtual model to visualize the impact immediately. This adaptability gives you the power to develop a laboratory that precisely corresponds with your changing research requirements.

Streamlined Collaboration: The 3D BIM serves as the central hub for all parties involved in the laboratory design process. This includes architects, engineers, and researchers who can utilize this virtual model to collaborate in real time. Such a platform facilitates clear communication and ensures alignment among stakeholders.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an innovative method for optimizing airflow design for conventional and flexible lab setups. CFD employs advanced computer software to replicate airflow behaviors in your lab, offering visualization of air movement, temperature distribution, and contaminant dispersion.

Benefits of CFD lab airflow design

Precise Design for Flexible Labs: CFD simulations enable testing of different configurations for fume hoods, workstations, and equipment placements. This ensures the effectiveness of your lab's airflow system as your research needs evolve.

Enhanced Safety: CFD simulations are instrumental in pinpointing stagnant air areas or insufficient containment, allowing for the design of an airflow system that reduces the risk of exposure to hazardous fumes and airborne contaminants.
