Facilities for scientific discovery are among the most complex of buildings, but they should never be difficult to use or enjoy. Behind the scenes, the planning will be meticulous and the servicing intensive – but all the occupants need to see is a perfectly functioning, safe, comfortable workspace that can flex to accommodate whatever it takes to make the next leap.
For many years, WSP has planned, designed and delivered laboratories and research facilities for institutions, government clients and the private sector. With 250+ experts encompassing lab planning, full design and operational certification, we bring both breadth and depth of expertise, as well as international best practice and insight. We are proud to have worked on some of the world’s most innovative and critical science buildings, and cherish client relationships that go back decade.
A great science building demands a holistic, integrated approach to planning and design.
There is no such thing as a generic laboratory, so we don’t offer a generic service. Our specialist teams work with you to determine your requirements, now and in the future, and then collaborate to create customised, adaptable solutions, for single or multi-tenanted spaces. We can guide you through the process of developing a compliant, future-ready building.
Our projects meet the highest containment, biosafety and biosecurity standards, and the most stringent technical requirements, but every one is unique. We are constantly striving for improvements in performance, efficiency and connectivity, and to create spaces that not only facilitate discovery, but help clients to attract and retain the best talent. We know that there’s no room for complacency in science – our clients never rest on their laurels, so neither do we.
We pride ourselves on collaboration because we know complex projects with complex teams requires a collective approach.
Our expertise ranges from lab planning, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and low voltage engineering through to project management, construction management and sustainability. Well-practiced at partnering and collaborating with both businesses and institutions we ensure a complete understanding of the processes and protocols required at any stage of your project.
