We create research facilities that inspire and connect
Precision matters. Whether that’s in scientific research, or in designing a lab to house that research, BuroHappold understand that science and technology projects always need to meet stringent criteria. Perhaps part of the lab needs to be kept secure and contaminate-free? Another requirement might be to isolate an area at a constant extreme heat or cold or allow for particular environmental conditions to suit certain equipment, away from vibration, acoustic or magnetic interference. The experienced team at BuroHappold will work with you to create a lab that meets all your needs now but is flexible enough to allow for future expansion.
Increasingly, big science complexes are choosing city centre locations over campuses. ‘Accelerated serendipity’ occurs when interaction is built into the environment, and BuroHappold’s understanding of this means that we will create social spaces where ideas happen, discoveries occur, connections are made, and investigations undertaken.
Reducing operating costs and the carbon footprint of a research building are criteria that will always be met by us. We understand that what works and how you do it is continually evolving. The engineering of science and technology buildings is demanding, as are the expectations placed on the outputs of those buildings. The Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Imperial College’s Michael Uren Building and The Institute of Food Research’s Quadram Building are just some of our buildings that meet our client’s precise needs, both now and in the future.
