This industry-leading company contracted with CannonDesign to program, plan, design and engineer a new 400,000 sf research center focused on life sciences. The facility is specifically designed to maximize efficiencies of interactions and process flow, while improving quality of life for all researchers and support personnel. The plan utilizes four, essentially rectangular, laboratory floor plates at each level, surrounding a central day-lighted courtyard, with shared collaboration spaces in the curved ends of the laboratory “bars.” Flexibility of laboratory reassignment is maintained, while collaborative opportunities are enhanced.
