Was responsible for ventilation components produced and delivered as a comprehensive unit

Together with HT Labor+Hospitaltechnik, YIT, the building services company, has developed modular high-safety laboratories that meet biosafety levels BSL 3 and BSL 4. Announcing this, YIT said that the containers or the structural steel parts for the multifunctional laboratories were manufactured entirely in Germany and then assembled and put into operation at the user’s premises.

It was responsible for the ventilation components, which were produced and delivered as a comprehensive ventilation container comprising the specified HEPA filter technology, gas-tight shut-off dampers and air flow controllers, YIT elaborated.

In this context, YIT gave the finer details of the project: A planning office is usually required for the centralised coordination of the construction of a high-safety laboratory. However, not all markets have an adequate number of planning offices with the necessary expertise – there are, in particular, shortfalls in this respect in the Arabian and Asian markets. Container laboratories manufactured abroad are, therefore, a pragmatic alternative for customers, because they then get everything from a single source – from the planning, component selection and manufacture, right through to acceptance and the commencement of operations. This also significantly reduces construction times from several years to approximately one year.
