Confidential Client Innovation Lab

Glenview, IL

TAP assisted a confidential client relocate their existing 50 year old R&D Lab to their new corporate facility. The main goal was to create a working lab that also allowed customers and tours to take place without having to interact with the individual labs. The flexible and multifunctional spaces needed to work for office employees, lab staff and for educational and customer tours. The new 15,000 sf Lab was designed with a rated internal corridor for all of the required gas and utilities infrastructure. Visual but not physical interaction with the labs was provided via partial height glass walls in selected corridors. TAP worked directly with the Lab Director and staff to locate and document all existing and new equipment including all unique utility requirements. Additional program requirements included an interactive display space along with adjacent conference and office space for Lab employees, clients and support staff. Specific lab types included Metallurgy, Chemistry, Microscopy, Environmental/Machining/Welding, Electromechanical Labs, Sandbox experimental labs
