Technical solutions

Adaptation flexibility


The space for rent we offer allows tenants to modify room arrangement to suit their requirements according to the research carried out. The businesses operating in the Park carry out a broad spectrum of research and tests, and often use items of equipment that are very diverse. This means that the buildings have to meet all and any process requirements and that the continuity of laboratory procedure has to be preserved. When it becomes necessary to carry out an extension or re-arrangement of the space rented, JCI provides design and technical support both to new and existing tenants.

Space modularity


The Park’s laboratory space was designed in such a way as to allow for conversion to suit individual user requirements. Depending on the use of the space rented, it can be divided into modules of minimum floor area of 100 sqm. By way of an example, an original area of 550 sqm can be divided with four partition walls, thus providing five rooms with floor area of ca. 110 sqm each. Alternatively original space can be partitioned into rooms of 50 + 200 + 300 sqm. This allows for subdividing space into separate zones for the purpose of specific research and preparing selected areas for use as, e.g., “Clean Rooms”.

Storey height and floor bearing capacity


Appropriate storey height ensures convenient space for installing fire alarm, ventilation, air conditioning, and heating systems as well as increasing arrangement potential of laboratory areas. Given the necessity to install heavy equipment in laboratories, the floor bearing capacity has been increased to allow for installation of items of equipment weighing up to 2000 kg. The building has been designed in such a way as to accommodate possible problems involved in equipment transport and installation. Equipment can be moved into individual areas through the roof or side walls.

Utility passages


Apart from space dedicated for individual laboratories, the building designers provided for additional utility passages (shafts). These spaces allow for extending plumbing systems and wiring systems installed in individual rooms. This ensures that, if the tenants’ requirements for service infrastructure extend beyond what was originally planned, this additional demand will be met.

HVAC and air exchange


Sufficiently frequent air exchange in a laboratory is one of the key determinants of safe and effective operation. The engineering solutions utilised in the Park allow for simultaneously maintaining constant temperature (inductive climaconvectors) and high air exchange rates of up to 22 times an hour.

Electrical supply


The buildings are equipped with a switching station and are fed electricity independently with two buried lines (primary and backup power supply) running from the Kampus distribution substation. Each of the electric service lines can carry all of electric power necessary to feed the entire facility. Backup power supply is provided by a diesel generator connected to the guaranteed voltage section of a 0.4 kV, 400 kVA low voltage switchboard. JCI provides 14 kW electrical power from the primary power source and 11 kW from the guaranteed power source (reserve power provided by the generator). Each of the spaces rented is fed electricity by a buried supply line 3×230/400V, functioning as a TN-S power system. The line is run to the connection point located in a given tenant’s premises, in the location where a primary and back up supply distribution panel is intended to be installed.

Fire protection and water mist system


When a fire breaks out and firefighting is carried out with traditional methods, laboratory equipment is likely to suffer substantial damage. The Park is one of the first capital projects in Poland that is equipped with a HI-FOG (water mist) sprinkler system. The system installed incorporates technology developed by the Finnish company Marioff Corporation. If a fire is suppressed using a traditional sprinkler system, up to 90% of equipment is likely to be damaged. HI-FOG technology can only damage ca. 10% of equipment.

Biosafety levels


Different types of laboratory activities require different biosafety levels, depending on the harmful potential of microorganisms that a given laboratory works with. Out of the four risk levels, laboratories in the Park can be adapted to meet BSL-3 level requirements.

Shared areas


Shared areas account for 25% of the Park’s area. Tenants have access to small conference rooms, meeting rooms, amenity areas as well as cloakrooms, utility passages, delivery bays and waste storage zones.
