We start by creating and populating a project specific equipment list and work with the design team to ensure that everyone is aligned from project initiation. During construction, we focus on ensuring orders are placed for just-in-time (JIT) delivery; managing storage and installation efforts; and coordinating calibration, qualification, and validation efforts through turnover.
By integrating with your project team, we provide guidance on equipment selection, architectural and utility requirements, and other decisions that can impact lab and manufacturing facility design. Our scientific background allows us to translate your needs into a usable list of equipment to streamline the design process and reduce costs of rework and redesign. Throughout the construction process, we review the purchased equipment against the approved design documents to ensure installation will be seamless. against the approved design documents to ensure installation will be seamless.
Experience seamless laboratory or GMP manufacturing facility design and construction with our dedicated Asset Management team. We pride ourselves on exceeding small and capital project goals, ensuring a harmonious alignment of scientific equipment with your program, user needs, and overarching objectives.
Helping you optimize the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your projects, we provide:
At the core of our approach is a meticulous understanding of your project’s program, user requirements, and overall objectives. Collaborating with you, we can pinpoint your needs, taking all the factors into consideration including space constraints, budget parameters, and workflows. As representatives for lab users and managers, we ensure that your project reflects their perspectives and requirements. The result? A design that is not only user-friendly but optimally functional. This initial step lays the foundation for a design and construction process that resonates with your intended outcomes.
Equipment Subject Matter Expertise (SME)
Our scientific knowledge is our differentiator. Our team includes former research scientists, operations staff and management, and equipment service technicians with a vast background utilizing scientific and production equipment in their respective previous roles. By acting as a member of the design team, we can speak confidently to the requirements of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) systems, bioreactors, microbiology and other specialty equipment. We can help you evaluate the requirements of different pieces of equipment and if need be, recommend solutions that mitigate any issues. By translating your project’s unique needs into a practical and actionable equipment list, we proactively reduce the chances of last-minute equipment changes, which can be both time-consuming and expensive. This foresight prevents costly redesigns and rework later in the construction process. Our team’s deep understanding of scientific processes allows us to incorporate specialized requirements seamlessly into the design and construction plans. After all, life-saving science is at the heart of what we do.
We ensure that your infrastructure (e.g., power requirements ventilation needs, process gases, etc.) aligns with the equipment selected by providing a design-level equipment list. This guarantees that the design of the lab or GxP space is both functional and efficient. Incorporating utility planning into the process is our way of ensuring that your facilities have the necessary infrastructure to support critical scientific equipment and processes. No detail is too small for our meticulous planning.
Throughout the construction process, we continue to play a critical role. Active participation in drawing reviews with constructive feedback is our way of refining design plans and curtailing the need for an RFI (Request for Information) in the field. We minimize the likelihood of errors and ensure the accuracy that your project demands. From equipment estimating and budget management to change management and lead time reviews, we ensure your project stays on track, maintaining timelines with precision. Our team conducts regular reviews of the equipment that is purchased against the approved design documents. This ensures your equipment complies with your project’s specifications and is ready for seamless installation. It minimizes the risk of delays, disruptions, or additional expenses that can result from equipment discrepancies.
By providing ongoing support and oversight, we ensure project accountability with a single point of contact, which in turn, reduces delays, conflicts, or budget overruns. This ensures streamlined communication, eliminating the risk of misunderstandings during the intricate phases of A/E design and construction.
Your A/E design and construction projects deserve nothing less than excellence. With Genesis, you’ll find that every detail matters, and every goal is not just met but consistently exceeded. Explore the difference expertise can make in every aspect of your project.Less -
Our team relies on our vast network of scientific subcontractor and vendor contacts to quickly budget, quote, and submit finalized equipment packages for purchase. Our thorough review of quotes and final purchase orders combined with our project knowledge allows us to align IT/software, consumables, installation documentation, and services with project needs. We manage the equipment budget, move budget, and IT automation budget, and utilize a total value design review process for change control. In the lead-up to occupancy, we work with vendors, client project management, and construction management to schedule installation and qualification to ensure all project timelines are met.Less -
Once equipment arrives onsite, our team project manages all aspects to bridge the gap between construction completion and science start-up. In order to maintain regulatory compliance, we provide a comprehensive document development package including user specifications, validation protocols, risk assessment, computer system validation, performance qualification, temperature mapping protocols and reports. Our validation experts operate as augmented staffing within your quality management and regulatory compliance systems to execute validation activities.Less -
Lab renovation projects often require highly coordinated phasing, requiring multiple equipment moves to and from temporary, completed, or future spaces. Our team helps lab managers and users determine the best strategy to ensure moves are executed with minimal downtime. We schedule disconnections, OEM vendor support, facilities, IT, movers, and coordinate the entirety of move activities. For regulated environments we support the development and execution of change control, decommissioning, recommissioning and revalidation deliverables.Less -
Capital projects involving the purchase of new equipment can often overwhelm internal or contract facilities management due to the sheer number of pieces and parts. While onboarding assets into site computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) often begins at project turnover, having a dedicated asset manager throughout the project ensures all required data is gathered prior to turnover. We believe that a capital project is not complete until all assets have been entered into and confirmed in client asset management software.Less -
