Animal Facilities and Related Biomedical Support Spaces

As concerns for more humane treatment of research animals increase, the standards for their care rapidly change. Simultaneously, the animal caretakers' working environment must be equally important. At Beck, Powell & Parsons, our in-depth knowledge of increasingly specialized equipment and facilities design means planning a pleasant, safe work environment and the best possible areas to house and care for animals. In addition, space and support systems must be flexible to meet future change in regulations and changes in program format. Our designers support the goals of the research organization by evaluating and responding to these diverse issues. The result is the design of buildings and space to meet today's needs and those of the future.
