life science research
The majority of Payette’s work over the past 30 years has been for academic and corporate research institutions, primarily in developing prototypical lab design for new and emerging research technologies. Although these spaces are highly technical in nature, the approaches that we have sought have greatly enhanced the adaptability and flexibility in the lab environment to support new modes of collaboration and interdisciplinary research, and to find ways to bring this research out into the public realm of our buildings. These solutions have also identified approaches that can dramatically change the energy profile of these highly intense spaces. We leverage our knowledge from previous projects, but begin each project with an open mind to look for the unique solution that solves each client’s particular needs, understanding how to navigate and build consensus across the various stakeholder groups.
