Industrial / Manufacturing Design

Over the past two decades, SCOPE has provided design services for more than 75 industrial and manufacturing projects helping clients maximize their operations. Our experience means less time is spent reviewing fundamentals and more time is spent on the technically sophisticated aspects of your project. We will work with you to find the right solutions for your project that reduce operational costs, increase flexibility and embody the best environmental design practices. Our work includes production testing, manufacturing, laboratories, research and development facilities, equipment shops, vehicle maintenance, clean rooms, warehouses, and more. Our goal is to provide you with a customized, quality and cost-effective design that considers long-term planning, flexibility and workplace safety.

Retail / Mixed Use Design & Upfits

In a globalized economy, few markets have changed as rapidly as the retail and food franchise market sector. Once characterized by large, generic boxes, these multi-layered environments have developed into spaces that shape social and commercial opportunities. At SCOPE we can help you create the right experience for your brand, with design solutions that are rooted in customized and personalized service, ease of use, integration and revenue.

Whether we are designing an upfit for your local business or expanding a food franchise, our experience and creativity has helped some of the most well-known brands establish fresh and innovative business solutions and/or re-position existing ones. Our solutions put you at the forefront of the industry enabling you to outperform the competition and gain a competitive advantage.

Laboratory Design & Upfits

No longer characterized by enclosed spaces for research, today’s laboratories have been challenged to evolve along with advancing science and technological demands. These new spaces are designed to be highly flexible, adaptable environments that allow for growth and change, encourage interaction and collaboration, and showcase both technology and methodology. Our design work at SCOPE is grounded in expertise and research, and it embraces this evolution in laboratory design. Consideration of the user groups’ macro- and micro-level needs of a laboratory including the flow of staff, equipment, product, and R&D activity inform our designs from start to finish. More than just functional spaces, our designs are known for standing the test of time and creating a sustained return on investment.
