As one of the most prominent gene circuit companies, Senti Biosciences has leased a property in Alameda, California, to construct their wholly-owned cell therapy manufacturing facility. This 92,000-square-foot building will meet the existing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to ensure clinical and commercial-scale manufacturing of different allogeneic product candidates. The customer selected the relevant site because of its strategic location near the company’s headquarters and R&D center. Since Senti Biosciences considers internal manufacturing capabilities an integral part of its business strategy to maintain the appropriate quality and supply of current and future therapies, the key challenge for VEC was to design power and lighting systems correctly. That is because the adequate performance of all power sources is crucial for satisfying the client’s manufacturing needs and regulatory requirements.
VEC specialists worked on this life science project in 2022. We cooperated with contractors, including McMillan Electric, when providing our high-quality BIM & VDC services, particularly power and lighting system modeling. Since the project's design represents a customized end-to-end manufacturing solution, we should have ensured that those systems would work efficiently and allow all the available machinery to produce necessary medicines. Here, we created 3D models using Revit software and shared them with all stakeholders. Thus, they understood how to construct the systems on-site. In turn, that reduced clashes, enhanced collaboration between the trades involved, and saved a lot of time. Since the customer deals with healthy donor cells in their operations, e.g., storing them in frozen vials, the correct work of power and lighting systems is essential. Thus, our BIM & VDC services guarantee their proper performance. Lastly, our team is proud to participate in this up-to-date project that will bring together the newest tech solutions and excellent manufacturing talent.
