In Coyol Free Zone, we strive to be a strategic partner for the companies of the Life Sciences industry in Costa Rica and in the park. We provide numerous services that support the success of their processes as well as the future growth of their businesses.

As we leave behind 2020 and the challenges that it presented, we, at Coyol Free Zone, keep pushing forward and developing the construction projects that emerged during that period; we made the necessary adjustments amidst COVID-19 and searched for new ways to maintain our clients’ projects on track and to keep up our international construction standards.

It was also important to maintain the business continuity of the Life Sciences companies in Costa Rica, particularly as the Medical Devices exports have been the country’s main ones since 2018, and have had a strong economic and social impact. Therefore, for Coyol Free Zone it has been essential to support the growth of this industry with the development of new and efficient infrastructure for their operations.

With 20 years of experience, Coyol Free Zone’s Engineering Department completed a series of buildings for our clients with the highest quality management and project administration system – a system that has an ISO 9001 certification as well as state-of-the-art collaborative design tools, which manage and control the progress of the projects (BIM, Procore and OpenSpace, among others). In addition, we are supported by a workforce that has extensive experience in projects with international standards such as FM Global and LEED. These qualifications guarantee the optimal use of resources in order to deliver our customers a quality product that meets their specifications.

Some of the construction projects we led this past year were the expansions of CooperVision, CooperSurgical, SMC Ltd., Microvention-Terumo, the construction of the new Multitenant 28 and Teradyne’s brand new site in Costa Rica , collectively measuring close to 60,000 square meters.

The Life Sciences industry in Costa Rica

As a Life Sciences cluster, we must keep innovating, and in spite of the challenges, we have been able to develop one of our most advanced projects: the CooperSurgical building. In this process, we implemented the BIM 360 platform to coordinate the entire design process and created a model that helped us, as a decision-making tool, during the construction process. This was continually updated until the final delivery of the project, allowing CooperSurgical to have a tailor-made model to manage their facilities for the future.

Looking ahead to 2021, Coyol Free Zone will continue to work with the most innovative and high-quality systems to develop our clients’ buildings.

“CFZ, in 2021, will continue with the trend of BIM management systems as well as the use of BIM models for decision-making in order to analyze the functionality of the works and to create efficiencies for our clients. Additionally, we will continue implementing modular construction and prefabricated elements to be able to speed up our projects,” affirmed David Salas, Coyol Free Zone’s Engineering and Project Director.

The Life Sciences industry in Costa Rica keeps growing quickly, developing new technologies that require modern buildings and an experienced workforce to deliver high-quality infrastructure.
