LABORATORY DESIGN

Empowering new discoveries and high-performance

The fast pace of scientific discovery and technology innovation requires laboratories of all types to be designed with flexibility and efficiency in mind. Successful labs are the result of extensive planning, collaboration and coordination between the design team and all involved. 

Synthesizing collaborative workplace design with scientific and safety needs

High-performing and supportive environments, focused around the work that you do and the functions that need to be facilitated, while keeping lab occupants motivated, safe, secure and satisfied with the quality of their work-life.

Creating environments that produce results

Laboratories are unique spaces that depend on specific integral and coordinated items. These spaces function their best when workflow, processes, material handling, storage and safety are understood by the entire design team.

Accessibility Assessments

Locating areas of non-compliance with relevant guidelines—ADAAG, ANSI, and/or FHA—and providing cost effective solutions to address deficiencies and help you mitigate risk.

Architecture

Driven by a purpose, and inspired by passion, our designs enrich lives through innovative design, activating the physical space, enhancing communities and elevating human experiences.

Building Code Analysis + Evaluation

Leveraging two, in-house Certified Master Plans Examiners and working through potential code issues at the beginning of a project—ultimately resulting in smooth permit reviews and creative, cost-effective solutions.

Capacity Studies

Analyzing the constraints of a site based on size and local regulations, along with your functional requirements and programmatic needs, to quickly determine the maximum square footage, number of units and/or parking spaces that a particular site can accommodate.

FF&E

Selecting, planning and managing your furniture, fixtures, and equipment package that aligns with your needs, design standards and budget, and promotes productivity by making users feel comfortable.

Healthcare Accreditation Consulting

Knowing how and where building codes and accreditation guidelines intersect to drive healthcare facility planning and construction, we adeptly navigate local codes, accessibility standards, life safety standards and facility design guidelines to protect patient safety, support positive patient outcomes, and drive compliance with CMS and Joint Commission standards.

Healthcare Interiors

Integrating medical equipment, furnishings and interior design with architecture to create spaces that reassure nervous patients, facilitate the work of healthcare professionals, and are durable and easy to maintain.

Information Technology Integration

Being thoughtful about the placement of innovative tools and the building systems that support those tools. Truly incorporating technology seamlessly into the design.

Lighting Design

Thinking about lighting design holistically from the onset of a project, our team designs so that both artificial and natural light can have positive impacts on your environment. We think about how each fixture fulfills functional, aesthetic and energy efficiency needs to provide you with the best lighting solution for each area.

Medical Technology Integration

Blending a sophisticated understanding of medical technology with functional, aesthetic and engineering requirements of diagnostic and treatment spaces, we endeavor to create high-performing, robust and beautiful facilities that support the work of your medical professionals and optimize patient experience and outcomes.

Programming

Through conversations with project stakeholders and interviews of key users, we learn about your organization and your facility needs. Taking this knowledge we then develop space requirements and area relationships necessary to move forward with space planning and designing your facility or campus.

Space Planning

Arranging all required spaces and components of a facility based on the scale and relationship requirements laid out in programming. Space planning allows the team to see how the program comes to life and validate area sizes and adjacencies.
