Purpose-driven design for science and research facilities is a specialty at NORR. We are uniquely positioned to provide fully integrated services for complex research and development hubs, bio-incubators, flexible graduation spaces and all levels of laboratories. Our designs are integral to the life-saving work of our clients across life sciences, bioscience, pharmaceutical, medical, education and commercial.
Our Design Approach
There is a growing convergence of sectors, institutions and industries where partnerships are forming to advance research. The growth of ”lab and collab” hubs is creating synergies for scientific research, promoting innovation and strengthening links between academia and the commercial world. Designing for growth and flexibility has never been more relevant to ensure collaborative scientific workplaces are resilient and can meet the demand for vital products and services today – and in the future.
Evolving at the Pace of the Sector
The success of any science and research project is underpinned by a holistic understanding of the vision. We consider all combinations of budget, technical requirements, manufacturing process, service distribution, spatial characteristics and user experience for all typologies. There is art and science in every design and program. We understand the needs of highly serviced facilities to maximize productivity, manage long-term operating costs and achieve sustainability targets.
