Research and Development

We excel in the smart design and delivery of progressive R&D facilities for innovation-driven companies, including testing labs, research laboratories, and technical centers.

Always looking ahead

Without an eye to the future, a company is destined to stall. We have an impressive roster of clients who have turned to us for the planning, design, and construction of their research and development facilities – the physical heartbeat of innovation.

Not only does our firm provide architectural and engineering consultation — we’re also a partner that understands the intricacies and processes that necessitate a successful launch: tapping into government initiatives, securing funding and risk capital for emerging technologies, as well as developing a base of well-trained scientists and managers who can turn good science into good business.

Our facilities meet these specialized requirements. Thriving research and development clusters have unique parameters and require attentive incubation. We understand the risks, and can help mitigate the cost of long-lasting R&D facilities, guiding clients from design to installation and construction.
