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.
