Bionova Scientific is a renowned biologics contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) focused on protein production, cell line development, and analytical expertise. The company built its commercial, fully single-use good manufacturing practice (GMP) biologics center in Fremont, CA. This modern manufacturing facility ensures the effective production of clinical supplies for customers utilizing mammalian cell culture trains.

The project aim was to enhance the company’s service offerings within biotherapeutics and meet the growing need for industrial biomanufacturing capacity. The most critical task for VEC tech specialists was to accurately create 3D models that aligned with the requirements for constructing manufacturing facilities. We had to ensure that all power and lighting systems would work appropriately to maintain efficient asset performance and overall manufacturing process.

VEC experts worked on this biomanufacturing 36,000-square-foot project in 2021, building high-quality 3D power and lighting system models for Bionova Scientific’s 2-stories facility. Our electrical BIM & VDC services team closely collaborated with the general contractor, Dome Construction, and other contractors.

Our Revit-created models minimized potential clashes and ensured the correct on-site construction of systems. VEC’s timely delivery allowed for better coordination of all stakeholders since everyone knew how the systems would perform in practice.

Electrical BIM & VDC

Our electrical BIM & VDC services cover power, lighting, and telecom system modeling. Also, the VEC team created a thorough BIM Execution Plan and shared it with all stakeholders to provide them with the correct understanding and management of relevant BIM deliverables.

Meanwhile, 3D systems’ models are vital to ensure their proper performance after construction due to the opportunity to detect and eliminate clashes quickly. That also strengthens project coordination as all parties get these 3D models and realize how the systems will be constructed on-site. After all, creating a unique environment that will offer student-centered learning is only possible with valuable BIM data and efficient cooperation between all contractors.

Civil Underground

VEC’s specialists deliver exceptional civil underground services for this educational project. They encompass various tasks such as 3D modeling, project management, BIM coordination, civil underground wet & dry (VDC), and onsite technology work. We have effectively utilized BIM software solutions such as Revitzo, Revit, and Navisworks throughout the project.

Our experts promptly document all design-related issues using PDF Markups and propose relevant solutions, including fittings and pipe length adjustments. Besides, we have created installation drawings to ensure accurate implementation in alignment with the plans. Lastly, our team performed essential tasks such as 3D laser-scanning, reporting on deviations from the current conditions, developing as-built models and drawings, identifying clashes, etc.

Since Bionova Scientific previously used the new biomanufacturing center as a cleanroom facility, there was a critical need to install all equipment and systems correctly. That is where our tech specialists came in handy by providing robust 3D power and system modeling. This plant is among the most challenging life science projects VEC has ever worked on, as we had to depend on industry-specific GMP production requirements.
Thanks to first-class electrical BIM & VDC services, the VEC Team contributed to creating an up-to-date manufacturing building.
As an integral part of Bionova’s project, we helped ensure compliance with international commercial drug manufacturing rules.
Despite the numerous barriers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VEC and other contractors delivered the required outcomes on time.

VEC Team Reviews

Omar Hussien

"It's amazing how fast and how much the bluff has receded over the last year. To capture and analyze this data opens my eyes to what this technology can be used for."

Jesus Chavez

"It was a pleasure working alongside AECOM to analyze the corrosion of the bluff using Laser scanning Technology and Drone Photogrammetry. The data we captured is essential as it will provide insight into the stability and safety of the bluff."
