Guardtech’s in-house design department consists of specialist 2D (AutoCAD) and 3D (SolidWorks) Engineers supported by experienced cleanroom practitioners producing detailed Design Documentation.

Guardtech Design Services:

PRE-CONSTRUCTION DESIGN: Providing wholesale design packages to be used to tender against or to move directly into the construction phase with. Compiled from client User Requirement Specification (URS) or from discussions and site surveys.

CONCEPT DESIGN: For clients that are in the exploratory phase of their Cleanroom project planning, Guardtech can produce packages that consider a number of early stage concept designs that can be reviewed prior to moving to pre-construction design.

POST-CONSTRUCTION: For facilities that have been established for some years, drawings may been outdated or lost. Guardtech can attend site, conduct a survey and compile drawings, O&M manuals, specifications and suggest potential upgrades.

Collaboration

The focus of every design project that Guardtech undertake is to produce the best possible solution at the best possible value. In Guardtech's experience this equilibrium comes from the balance of these 5 factors:

1. PROCESS REQUIREMENTS
2. SPACE OPTIMISATION
3. COST EFFECTIVENESS
4. TIME LIMITATIONS
5. CLIENT DESIRES

Whether the starting point is a blank canvas, a concept that needs developing, or initial drawings and URS, Guardtech work with clients to find the best balance between budget and specification. Drawing on 20 years of experience Guardtech deliver a Cleanroom design that meets process demands, whilst enhancing facility aesthetics and providing a compliant, comfortable working environment for operators. No matter what size the project, Guardtech conduct an initial site survey and consultation to clarify and understand client requirements in full. From initial survey Guardtech prepare a full detailed proposal and preliminary concept designs, these form the basis of the estimation process, and are reviewed and revised until the client is happy to sign off and raise the PO.

Compliance

Whether working towards GMP compliance or ISO14644 accreditation, Guardtech provide tailored solutions that facilitate efficient personnel, product and process flow whilst delivering against the relevant standards. Accommodating appropriate air changes, pressure differentials and cascades and utilising specialist tools such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to map out airflow visualisation patterns to minimise particulate contamination.
