By its very nature science and research experiences constant technological and mission change. We design inspirational, adaptable spaces which can accommodate future needs through imaginative space planning and intelligent services infrastructure design, which enhance collaborative working, facilitate advanced ICT and other Technologies, while respecting the need for low operational costs.
We work closely with academics, scientists, researchers, engineering and FM Ops estates teams; listening, analysing, exchanging ideas and stimulating imaginative solutions.
Differing perspectives need to be considered when developing potential options in response to a complex brief with demanding functional requirements.
We believe that a collaborative work style is an essential ingredient of this process of reconciling quality, functionality, sustainability and aesthetics with our client’s capital and operational cost objectives.
