The Company

About us

LaborPlan GmbH is an independent laboratory facilities design company and is independent of any product or manufacturer. The LaborPlan business was established on a sole trader basis in 1997. 

In 1998 , the business was converted into a GmbH (private limited liability company). The firm is led by its two partners and founding members, Stefan Torrie and Taddeo Bortoletto. 

Our Team is now made up of two Partners, two permanently employed Designers and several freelance staff. Team members can look back over many years of experience in the laboratory sector; their basic training has been the fields of architecture, interior design, process technology and mechanical engineering . 

This experience is used in a complementary manner within the individual projects, allowing us to meet the wishes of the Client in the best possible way.

The way we work

We love designing, and look forward to our work every day. We regard ourselves as consultants to our Clients. The users of each laboratory always play a key role for LaborPlan GmbH, whether the laboratory in question is intended for the hospital, industrial chemistry, pharmaceutical or medical practice sector.

Our approach is to avoid formulating answers before any questions have been asked. At the beginning of any project, we work intensively with our Clients to find out exactly what they want  (user survey). This work is then used as the basis for the fundamentals that are required for subsequent design activities. 

During the next stages of planning, we work out the basic principles for a detailed construction design in a team that also includes specialist building services designers. Finally, we produce independent specifications for the submission of tenders for laboratory facilities; together, these specifications and the designs form an optimised, independent basis for any laboratory manufacturer to carry out their calculations. 

We can also prepare photo-realistic visualisations for the Client to serve as a basis for decision-making. This is particularly helpful in studies involving innovative elements in the facilities.
