Capsida Biotherapeutics, Inc. is a well-known, fully-integrated biotech company that creates innovative targeted adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapies for people struggling with life-threatening genetic disorders. Their business is considered unique because of its end-to-end expertise, involving not only AAV engineering, translational biology, and clinical development, but also effective cargo development, optimization, and up-to-date manufacturing.
The project’s main objective was to create a new manufacturing site and use it for engineering small viral particles that help treat rare genetic diseases. This biopharmaceutical facility covers two production suites that allow for flexible movement of equipment, a sterile fill room for drug packaging, and a large storage space with freezers for drug preservation. The most significant task for VEC was ensuring proper power and telecom system performance, which is crucial for the consistent and rapid manufacturing of high-quality therapies.
VEC specialists were a crucial part of this manufacturing site project in 2021. For such a state-of-the-art facility in Thousand Oaks, California, our experienced team provided BIM & VDC services and created 3D models of power and telecom systems. During the project, VEC closely collaborated with all involved contractors, including Taft Electric.
With BIM technology, we enhanced cooperation between all stakeholders and maintained effective communication by providing all parties with the necessary data. Our team created a BIM Execution plan that enabled further management of BIM deliverables and construction of the mentioned models on site.
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.
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.
"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."
"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."
