We can also offer you our project management skills to get the job done: “A laboratory that is ready to go”.

Only happy when it works

We helped our customers in designing their new lean laboratory to state of the art laboratory standards. For this we used Revit to create a full 3D walk-through experience. Showed our added value in helping our customers to work out improvements on safety, ergonomics, DEP, workflow, air-handling and user-experience.

Recent Cost Saving Happy Client0

Happy employees, customers and partners are most important to us. We regularly ask you for your feedback. We are only happy if you are.


Customer feedback helps us to continuously innovate an improve our work and helps us both to a Fit4Purpose laboratory.

BIM Labs Modeling

A Building Information Model (BIM) is becoming mandatory in the laboratory design because it’s saving time (integrated planning), saving money and prevents lots of frustration (on resolving changes) for clients and all third parties involved.

“I have never seen a supplier hitting all the boxes with their detailed BIM Revit laboratory design. A clear example to others – Adam. C.  BIM Coordinator”

BIM Laboratory Design becomes a must. Designing and Engineering a new laboratory is a complex process. It comes with a lot of variables. That’s why we always design in 3D and are fully BIM compliant. We are an expert in BIM Laboratory Design and also independent (also very helpful for a Tender process).

BIM Clash detection


Working in one BIM makes clash detection possible. A clash detection is a conflict between the different designs of third parties involved. Combining all Autodesk Revit models, makes this possible. We are expert in Autodesk Revit and our chief designer has even the Revit Expert Elite status.

It’s estimated that 25% to 30% of construction project resources (time, money, materials etc.) are wasted on resolving change orders

The next picture gives you an example of such a clash detection, colored in red.

BIM Laboratory Design Clash detection example

In our previous project we prevented 34 clashes. Can you imagine how much money has been saved in the total building costs for a new Laboratory.

Advantages of BIM:


  • New mandatory way to collaborate
  • Saving Cost, Time and Materials
  • Great user experience (3D, 2D, interactive)
  • One Truth, one Model, great change management
  • Integration Third Parties
  • Usage BIM by Facility Management
