R+D / Labs

They way today’s healthcare, education and workplace spaces are changing and trends in laboratory facility design continue to evolve in similar ways. Design and construction teams are being challenged to create laboratories that encourage collaboration among researchers, facilitate partnerships between different organizations, recruit and retain team members and adapt to future needs.

Offering built-in value through adaptive design.

Planning, designing, engineering and constructing research facilities is most successful when the clients’ goals and requirements lead, with trends helping to inform the conversations.

Science is a field of continual growth and rapid change so labs need to be built with adaptation in mind. Successful spaces are flexible – those that respond to present needs and can accommodate future demands.

A facility needs to support the organization’s mission, culture and vision, and we are committed to achieving that on behalf of our clients.
