Designing the Labs of the Future: Client Case Studies
Reducing Requirement for Laboratory Floor Space by 28%
Relocating 325 scientists from seven departments.
Moved NJ campuses to Massachusetts to improve external collaborations, creating $20M in savings and the ability to repurpose 1-year R&D budget.
Space program (concept design) and proposal produced by the architect-engineer (A-E) company did not meet the business expectations.
Utilised occupancy data to benchmark space metrics applied to the scientific groups who were part of the space relocation.
Densified existing underutilised laboratories by 150%
We realized new value through disposal, reducing the overall footprint by 15% and decreasing overall facility operating costs with a 2-year ROI.
The organization had six underutilized laboratory buildings occupied for the past 20 years.
eLABorate was used to examine occupancy and equipment utilization, along with a pilot study to validate the potential strategic optimization of the buildings. We retired underutilized equipment, increasing occupancy of the lab space.
Saved Scientists 27% in Lab Maintenance Costs
We helped the lab accommodate a 20% increase in headcount to meet their growth targets, along with creating a savings of 27% on service maintenance costs. We also helped them by not extending any leases on temporary buildings.
We were asked to help reduce service maintenance costs on the lab asset fleet by eliminating underutilized equipment.
We compared the utilization data to service and maintenance costs in order to identify the value of optimizing the fleet. We eliminated equipment used less than 10% of its full capacity, and we used occupancy and equipment utilization data from the client’s temporary lab while the new building was under construction to redefine space metrics.
Reduced existing R&D HQ Campus by 150,000 SF
We helped consolidate 850 scientists from 53 different scientific groups, improving preferred group adjacencies on the main campus (increasing productivity).
To improve the preferred adjacency of scientific groups collocated and improve interaction, communications, and collaboration. To examine the opportunity to exit locally leased office space to allow employees back to campus.
By benchmarking occupancy and space data, Full Spectrum Lab Services from CBRE was able to right-size space allocations and improve scientists’ relative locations. We also identified 150,000 sq ft of space to relocate staff back to main campus.
