We collaborate with our clients to realise their aspirations at the cutting edge of research and technology to foster and inspire world class discovery, creating places that celebrate science as a cultural activity.
BDP’s designs respond to the rapid pace of change in R&D and the demand for open, agile and interactive places for scientific research.
We pioneer cost effective and space efficient solutions in response to demanding and complex briefs which synthesise design and functional excellence with low energy, high sustainability performance in these high technology environments.
For more information please view our Science, Research & Technology brochure.
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.
Building bringing together researchers from different locations working in the fields of molecular and microbiology, materials and reaction engineering, sensor and biosensor and magnetic resonance research.
The aim of the Technology and Innovation Centre is to facilitate change in the ways that the university and industry engage.
A central hub of labs will form the focal point for the centre, which will encourage collaborative working across the organisation and provide easy access for the wider scientific community through an open design and campus environment.
A building to enable a new research initiative which will push the boundaries of medical science by drawing physics deeply into the life sciences.
The Bio-Therapeutics Hub for Innovation (BioHub) will provide a physical hub for the life sciences sector in the region, offering the opportunity for knowledge transfer and growth through co-location and the provision of sector leading facilities.
