BeCAT – Berlin Center for Advanced Therapies
Laboratory building

Berlin Center for Advanced Therapies / BECAT is being developed as a research building for the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin is pursuing therapeutic approaches in the field of regenerative medicine, hematology and oncology, which are based on the new product class of ATMPs [Advanced Therapy Medical Products].
BeCAT is a modern research building with a laboratory and clean room. The project is funded by the state budget of the State of Berlin and federal funds to support research buildings at universities.
As part of the gradual development and densification of the Seestraße campus on the Charité site in the Wedding district, BECAT is located adjacent to the research building the “Simulated Man” as a building ensemble around a common campus site. The media technology is accessed between the two buildings via a common basement [technical cellar]. BeCAT is accessed via a main entrance to Campusplatz. At the western end of the building there are separate entrances for the disposal room and the goods receiving department.
Storey heights and path relationships are optimised using a split-level design. The building consists of a basement with technology and storage use, 2 to 3 above-ground floors (split level) with lounges and an upper floor with only technology use. Two equally sized clean room areas [GMP] are arranged on the ground floor and mezzanine.
The standard of the building is based on the qualities of BNB silver.
DGI Bauwerk is working on the project in work phase 2-8. The BIM process takes place in work phase 2-6 with the participation of the specialist planners in Big BIM [data exchange Open BIM].
