Design Support

 About Design Support

The CCTech Design Support Process (DSP) is intended to complement and expedite the design process for research facilities. We begin with an understanding of the research process and the need for compliance with regulatory bodies such as the Home Office and MHRA. Of equal concern is that buildings are healthy and safe work places for staff and visitors and secure. This is of central concern to the development of facilities to support biology, biomedical and environmental science.


Our approach and understanding enables engagement with the all of the key stakes holders to ensure the facility will meet the requirements of the researchers, will be operational at the end of the project and will achieve compliance / licencing with the regulatory authority.


The CCTech team has relevant experience of licensed facilities and a deep understanding of specialised science environments, operational requirements and regulation. We work closely with the design team to ensure the project is a success and meets the needs of the key stakeholders.

1. User Requirement Specification

The URS considers all aspects of the proposed design and ensures they meet the client and end user requirements, including regulatory and budgetary expectations. A new facility offers an opportunity to improve working practises increase productivity and reduce operating costs.


The key elements of the Design Support Process

2. Standard operating procedures

Review the operating procedures for the new facility. This may require devising new procedures as new activities are incorporated into new research requirements, new equipment and technical applications such as robotics may be incorporated for the first time. These will have a significant impact on the effectiveness and productivity of the facility and need to be carefully considered.


3. A Regulatory Compliance Plan

The research facility is being constructed against a backdrop of a changing regulatory framework.  CCTech will work within a robust evidence-based process in collaboration with the institution, licence holders, Home Office and other Regulatory Bodies so that all stakeholders can have complete confidence in the approvals achieved.


4. Burn-in Programme

Our experience gained internationally means that we can bring all the lessons that have been learnt to the benefit of this project. The development of the  Burn-In programme which happens post commissioning offers the benefits of running the building under full, part, low loads and failure scenario’s 24/7 for 30 days and with the express purpose of shaking out any weak points under simulated operational conditions.
