We collaborate with our clients to realise their aspirations at the cutting edge of research and technology to foster and inspire world class discovery, creating places that celebrate science as a cultural activity.
BDP’s designs respond to the rapid pace of change in R&D and the demand for open, agile and interactive places for scientific research.
We pioneer cost effective and space efficient solutions in response to demanding and complex briefs which synthesise design and functional excellence with low energy, high sustainability performance in these high technology environments.
For more information please download our Science, Research & Technology brochure.
By its very nature science and research experiences constant technological and mission change. We design inspirational, adaptable spaces which can accommodate future needs through imaginative space planning and intelligent services infrastructure design, which enhance collaborative working, facilitate advanced ICT and other Technologies, while respecting the need for low operational costs.
We work closely with academics, scientists, researchers, engineering and FM Ops estates teams; listening, analysing, exchanging ideas and stimulating imaginative solutions.
Differing perspectives need to be considered when developing potential options in response to a complex brief with demanding functional requirements.
We believe that a collaborative work style is an essential ingredient of this process of reconciling quality, functionality, sustainability and aesthetics with our client’s capital and operational cost objectives.
