Lord, Aeck & Sargent specializes in the design of high performance buildings for the corporate community, including life sciences research, diagnostic and testing labs, corporate R&D facilities and manufacturing and production spaces.
Critical design issues that affect the design of corporate research laboratories are the concepts of high through-put analysis, targeted approaches of applied research, and the concepts of “time to market” and “total product costs”. These are unique to the corporate laboratory and require a specialized understanding of the corporate products and mission.
Corporate needs and missions change, and it is of primary importance that these facilities respond not only to initial demands but have the flexibility to respond and adapt to these changes over time. Our designs not only support the functional elements of this facility type, but also provide pleasant, attractive spaces that can improve employee morale and assist in the recruitment and retention of staff.
