Breakthroughs in University Lab Design

The complexity of design in today’s university laboratories requires an innovative project approach. The design team for the new Microbial Sciences Building at the University of Wisconsin – Madison faced a challenging interdisciplinary collaboration: three departments planned to share lab space in a single building. This visionary concept in academia demanded an all-new project approach from the design teams at CO Architects, Plunkett Raysich Architects LLP (PRA), and lab consultant Earl Walls Associates. The project consolidates and enables UW-Madison’s multidisciplinary program in Microbial Sciences.
