Healthcare & Life Sciences
Between The Pinnacle Medical Plaza, The Scripps Research Institute, DepoTech/SkyPharma, the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine and the recently completed Sharp Rancho Bernardo facility, Lankford&Associates has an impressive portfolio of medical and biotech projects. Successful projects require tremendous collaboration with doctors and scientists early on to establish a clear understanding of the spatial and programmatic needs in the form of a lab or space plan. Execution of this plan is the key and includes upfront coordination with subcontractor trades. Maximizing efficiency of the space utilization is essential and often comes down to a matter of inches. Both DepoTech/SkyPharma and The Scripps Research Institute have very specialized laboratory facilities, which required extraordinary attention to detail in the design, planning and construction phases.
Whereas The Scripps Research Institute and DepoTech/SkyPharma were both build-to-suits, Sharp HealthCare became interested in The Pinnacle Medical Plaza just after the completion of Construction Drawings. In this case, Lankford&Associates modified the schedule in order ensure that their specific requirements could be incorporated with the build-out of the shell. Effective space planning was crucial for Sharp, which includes 25 practice groups and serves multiple North San Diego County communities.
Lankford&Associates believes that health care and biotech are essential and robust parts of our economy’s future. With a successful track record in this area, we look forward to delivering more state of the art facilities.
