We recognize that scientists, researchers, and academic science students need to move at the speed of their ideas, both as individuals and in collaboration with others. Through our experience with public, private, and academic science facilities, we understand the requirements needed for facilities to inspire scientific discovery, maximize flexibility for future program growth, and create an environment where people can collaborate formally and informally. The lab projects we have estimated for have gone on to win numerous industry awards, inspired next-generation scientist, and achieved unthinkable accolades.
