As Architect of Record for the Consolidated Toxicology Hazards Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, B&N designed a top-flight facility with a work environment that boosts morale, increases productivity and helps attract and retain quality scientific talent. The laboratory combines research efforts of three military branches – Army, Air Force and Navy, making it one of the leading national centers for Toxicology Hazards Research in the United States.
During the 30 day Request for Proposal (RFP) response period, B&N architects identified a floor plan solution that would better meet the clients’ needs than the one provided in the RFP bridging documents. The B&N team adapted the design with minimal impact to the project schedule. The revised floor plan improved circulation, maximized floor space, incorporated natural light and added teaming spaces.
