Science + Technology

Today, a fundamental shift is occurring in the design and construction of modern research facilities. Buildings must reach beyond bricks and mortar and be more than just passive, artful containers. They must provide a wide range of outcomes to support an institution's current and future goals, enable collaboration, attract the brightest minds, maximize efficiencies, facilitate learning and foster scientific discovery.

From lab planning and program management, to the design and construction of flexible research facilities that speed discovery, increase sustainability, and encourage collaboration between disciplines – CRB's experts will work closely with you to create adaptive, tailored solutions for your specific research challenges and workplace needs.
PlanningWhether you are planning for the short term or embarking upon a long term vision, having quality information is key to understanding the relationship between facility and business requirements. Our Strategic Facility Planning team can work closely with you to provide the data and tools needed to manage facility assets and align facility strategies with internal business planning requirements.
ArchitectureWe're not just talking about buildings; we're talking about the people inside them.

Our dedicated S+T team has a passion for and true connection with the motivations and increasingly complex needs of the people inside today's modern research environments. We have an intrinsic understanding of the spaces required for the best and brightest minds to successfully challenge convention and advance new research.

Our design philosophy is fundamentally linked to the bright, the bold, the smart and the dramatic, while delivering measurable outcomes in support of your strategic mission.
