“Today, scientists are reinventing science as new methods and technologies become available. In turn, we must design facilities to accommodate both existing and future technologies. We speak the language of scientists, offering a distinct blend of technical knowledge and design creativity.”


About Ken

Ken is an established and experienced laboratory programmer, planner and designer. “As a young architect, I found my true interest was in the design of science facilities after working on a project for Argonne National Laboratories,” Ken states. After 26 years, he continues to find the design of science facilities challenging and has an extraordinary understanding of the complex and technical issues involved. He believes science facilities must provide critically controlled environments for laboratory instrumentation and/or processes while at the same time providing quality human environments; environments that encourage collaboration, discovery and learning among investigators, faculty and students. Ken also understands the business and operational issues influencing laboratory facility design and the challenges owners face with their investments in capital construction.
