Portfolio for Labs and R&D

Laboratory Architecture and R&D Projects

Our lab planners & lab architects are experts in science architecture and innovative lab and campus R&D designs from the ground up.

Designing laboratories today means creating more complex, collaborative, multi-use and industry-specific spaces than ever before. Whether for private industry or academic institutions, specialty lab design continues to evolve over time. Technology and science applications are moving at a rapid pace, with mobility and flexibility at the helm. However, no matter how much labs change over time, lab safety expertise remains the one constant for both architects and users alike.

At Kirksey, we know that every good lab project is designed from the inside out. So we start at square one - working closely with our clients to understand laboratory procedures specific to their business for the project to translate effectively. From the type of equipment, flow of the space and safety measures that are incorporated -- everything has to be taken into account before we start designing. We also understand that waste takes up space, so our job is to help clients answer the necessary questions to understand space requirements and storage needs. We effectively deliver a design that helps our clients do better business.

Our Laboratory Design Experience

Our Science & Technology Team is committed to providing design for healthy, high-performance laboratories that are safe, efficient, and ergonomically sound. We work closely with our clients to bring a combined level of expertise and deliver creative and innovative solutions for unique laboratory spaces. With 2+ million square feet of laboratory design in our portfolio, Kirksey’s Science & Technology team expertly approaches every laboratory project with customized solutions, specific to the client’s safety, programmatic, and technical needs. We also have considerable experience in planning and designing large campus projects for R&D purposes.
