Science & Technology

Designs that advance new discoveries

The pace of discovery relies on the resources supporting it. That’s why we design facilities and processes that foster connections between passionate people—because from people come ideas, and from ideas come transformative discoveries.

Whether the project is an academic research or instructional laboratory, research and development facility, biomedical laboratory, or biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility, we’re helping our clients improve quality of life in our communities.

Science is a complex business and designing facilities that adapt to evolving technologies presents unique challenges. Flexibility to adapt to changing standards and needs, sustainable building design, and high-volume production are some of the many factors to be considered. We understand those complexities and work with owners, researchers, instructors, and production managers to design facilities and efficient processes that inspire creative thinking and collaboration.

Adaptive reuse for research and development

Developers and owners are looking for ways to reinvigorate their facilities and make smarter, more impactful investments. With life science research on the rise and advanced technology having a moment, dormant commercial spaces have become prime candidates for conversion to laboratory and R+D space. Location, energy use, safety, and flexibility all play a role in considerations. Read More
