How building controls impact the facility design process

Building automation is critical to the performance, cost, and regulatory compliance of life sciences facilities. Yet, unless included in the earliest design stages, implementing the building management system (BMS) can delay construction and incur unnecessary costs.

To make the facility design process smoother, many life sciences planning experts follow the Building Accelerator Methodology (BAM), a field-proven approach based on industry best practices. This approach delivers benefits such as:
  • Improved building performance and efficiency
  • Shorter construction timeline
  • Smoother turnover to operations staff
  • Decreased long-term costs
  • Ensured regulatory compliance

What’s the ultimate payoff of taking the BAM approach todesigning and constructing a life sciences facility? Faster construction, quicker owner acceptance, and improved performance and efficiency. Leveraging the BAM approach enables life science project stakeholders to get it right the first time.
