Visioning Workshops Help Biotech Firms Design for Growth

New Haven, CT – Svigals + Partners has kicked off a series of Biotech Visioning Workshops for its clients, which include in-person or virtual interviews and collaborative consultations to help growing biotech companies and their real estate brokers develop a framework for meeting key infrastructure demands as research intensifies and industry pressures grow.

Known for designing productive research environments as well as a proven “creative engagement” process, Svigals + Partners  has developed an effective framework that guides end-users — as well as realtors and brokers — in evaluating potential sites and redesigning existing buildings or even entirely new facilities. The workshops consider such aspects as:

• Strategic goals and aspirations
• Phased growth and expansion planning
• Adaptability, moduarity and flexibility
• Project constraints and budget parameters
• Scheduling implications

The national design firm is based in New Haven, a metro area where 40-plus new biotech ventures have emerged over the last decade. Having worked on the headquarters and R&D settings for such noted companies as Achillion and BioHaven Pharmaceuticals as well as research leaders including Yale University and the University of Connecticut, Svigals + Partners has cultivated a reputation for designing laboratories that serve both scientific research and the spirit of the researcher, believing that each informs and celebrates the other.
