Science + Technology Practice Leader

Punit Jain

Often an oxymoron, sustainable laboratories are some of the most difficult environments to design and operate effectively. Punit is a true advocate for creating sustainable laboratories that succeed beyond just LEED certification—designs that truly transform how scientists, researchers and students work and learn.

Punit brings extensive experience in the integration of systems, spaces and experiences for his clients. He is responsible for generating innovative solutions in regenerative and net zero designs for complex science facilities at all scales. A widely known thought leader, Punit serves on the national board of the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) and the advisory board of the Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA).
