Steve Freson AIA, Principal

Mission and Passion - Flad's expertise in designing high containment facilities is exceptional. We go beyond the technical aspects of a project to gain real insight into our clients' corporate missions, their passions. Once they open up, we can create a solution that reflects that passion while meeting their business goals.

Steve Freson understands laboratories. He understands how they work, and how researchers work in them. He knows the different protocols and procedures employed in high containment, biology, chemistry, physical science, vivarium, and radiological facilities, and how the physical environment must be adapted to fit the nature of the research. However, he goes beyond the technical aspects of a project to gain real insight into the client’s corporate mission, their vision, their research goals. His job is not creating a better building. It’s facilitating discovery and advancing science.
