Academic Science & Technology
Collaborative design that advances research and supports progressive academic communities. Behind every academic researcher is a great academic research facility...
Bright minds supported by a high-caliber workspace can think outside the box, explore the unknown, and push limits in their quest to change the world. College and university research facilities provide environments that inspire creative thinking and collaboration, but they must also meet the space demands of an advancing and evolving field, and be flexible enough to adapt to changing standards in sustainable building design. We help clients meet these challenges by also using creativity, collaboration, and flexibility. Each building component is examined both individually and from an integrated perspective. Where opportunities exist to include interactive spaces, we explore them. Sustainability is no longer an option, but a mandate—many academic institutions are now committed to the goal of carbon neutrality by 2030. We work with clients to achieve this goal. From stacking different labs on top of each other to strategically grouping research spaces for maximum interaction, we come up with creative ways to address long-term sustainability and attract, retain, and inspire top researchers.
