Research and innovation continuously drive transformation in the healthcare & research industries, which directly affects facility design. With changes in demographics, nursing models, patient journeys, codes and licensing standards, and advances in medical research; Jacobs' design and project
management professionals understand the challenges clients face in managing their healthcare environment. We help clients maintain high patient care standards and promote patient safety and efficiency with solutions that can also help improve recruiting
and retaining the best doctors, nurses, and healthcare staff.
From entire hospital campus developments to community healthcare resources, primary care clinics and laboratories, Jacobs designs and constructs state-of-the-art facilities that are flexible and adaptable to allow for evolving medical technologies and delivery
of healthcare services.
Jacobs approaches the design of science and technology research based facilities with its primary goal being the creation of an environment that facilitates scientific discovery, while adhering to strict standards of safety. We measure the value of our design
on the success rate of pharmaceutical research, on the continued growth and contribution of students of science, and on advancements made within environments that we have authored that positively impact the wellbeing of mankind.
Our integrated architecture and engineering approach focuses on understanding the complexities in the design of structures highly dependent on sophisticated and intricate systems, and on a belief that it is possible to resolve the distribution requirements
in concert with the creation of a work environment rich with afforded experience.
Jacobs' specialized laboratory consulting team provides strategic and master planning, programming, design, and construction documentation services for top-tier academic, government, and corporate research, development, and teaching lab facilities across
the full spectrum of biological, biomedical, chemical, and applied and theoretical engineering disciplines. Our expertise also includes vivarium design.
Using data collected about current building systems and the activities of laboratory users, we create a functional program to describe the client's operational requirements. Through innovations in programming, layout execution, equipment expertise, and
quality control we refine and define the leading edge of laboratory and research facility design.
