Research and Development Unit Priority Projects
Strategic renovation and reconfiguration
As one of the world's most successful pharmaceutical corporations, this confidential client is constantly seeking to improve its ability to respond to the world's health needs and develop new therapies. To that end, they have embarked on a groundbreaking project with the development of a new vision for their research and development community, integrating new research paradigms that incorporate wet bench research with sophisticated and powerful scientific equipment in conjunction with specialists in data analytics.
In conjunction with this new vision for the entire campus, 20,000 square feet of strategically important renovations and reconfigurations were implemented. These priority projects transform how research is done, both inside and outside of traditional lab settings. New workplace dynamics further encourage and support these team relationships between lab and non-lab researchers in finding new discoveries.
Several innovative strategies were utilized to support this new vision. For example, continuous floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide maximum transparency and brings shared light into the renovated laboratories and office space adjacent to a central building corridor. Their new open office spaces feature informal collaboration areas near group entrances. Their new research and workspace paradigm features office workstations and focus rooms adjacent to large open research laboratory space.
Existing fume-hood-dense chemistry labs have been transformed into open, day-lit biology research labs, supporting a variety of utility intensive bench-top equipment at the perimeter with flexible island benches in the center.
These new scientific workspace arrangements promote agile and responsive solutions to rapidly changing research initiatives and technologies.
