Design Environments That Ignite and Inspire Scientific Discovery and Research That Enriches the World

We design forward-looking, technically advanced research facilities that inspire the People Who Do Research—enriching their discovery experience and developing curiosity, resulting in disruptive innovations, emerging technologies, and cutting-edge services and products that transform our world.

Building on five decades of experience planning and designing research facilities, BHDP has consistently delivered value to our Discovery & Science clients by designing adaptable environments that attract and retain world-class research talent, inspire original thinking, promote safety, and meet regulatory compliance requirements. We understand the discovery process begins with breakthrough ideas followed by a rigorous and methodical process of investigation, experimentation, and innovation led by people using complex equipment and instrumentation to perform activities in controlled environments. Leveraging our experience in the design of advanced manufacturing facilities, we create specialized early-phase, scale-up production facilities that support pre-production testing and trials of new products.

Our experience spans multiple fields, including pharmaceutical research (large and small-scale molecules), cell and gene therapy, petrochemicals, agriculture, and advanced materials for Industrial, Government, and Higher Education clients.

This building is a physical representation of the value we put on innovation. All the testing possibilities are right there and very accessible.
