80+ projects currently being led by this sector
Working with over 70 separate organisations across 13 global markets
Understanding the needs and requirements of the world’s top universities and research institutions
Groundbreaking biomedical facilities. Efficient automotive complexes. Leading centres for education and electronics research. The range of client sectors served by BuroHappold’s science and technology teams is broad, and thriving economically. This year has seen a record number of projects delivered and completed, reinforcing our reputation as a leader in the field.
Our reach is wide, and getting wider. Work this year has stretched from Boston to LA, Hong Kong to Germany and of course, the UK. Internal collaboration has been key in integrating our global teams to ensure the best engineers are working on the right projects. Our centres of science and technology excellence in London, Boston and Edinburgh have shared knowledge and skills across our network, delivering the very best for clients.
Despite, or perhaps because of, global uncertainty, countries still see investment in research and development, as absolutely fundamental to the success and growth of their economies. Such investment ensures funding for science and technology projects is solid. The market continues to be strong.
We are creative engineers. Clients say they choose BuroHappold for projects that are technically very difficult, require a high level of multidisciplinary thinking, or those with a strong aesthetic or design element.
This year we have delivered on all fronts, from the expansion and update of Draper, a 456,000ft2 advanced technology centre in the US, to the complex construction of the Quadram Institute in Norwich, a research and diagnostics centre, to the ground breaking Jaguar Landrover automotive campus.
Increasingly, we understand much more about how people use our buildings. By really studying a facilities efficiency and effectiveness, we are starting to predict whether one building is better than another for inspiring and producing ideas and work.
What is the purpose of buildings in this sector? To have ideas, and to discover ideas. Our aim moving forward, is outcome orientated engineering. We have started using modelling techniques that enable us to predict the likely effectiveness of a research environment. Research effectiveness is fast becoming key to our engineering, in each and every project.
