Serving the role of a lab specialist, 1st Phase offers its lab planning and design services to help with research workflow analysis, bio-, chemical and radiation safety assessments, laboratory functional areas specification, site assessment, laboratory planning and layout design, as well as laboratory equipment specification and selection.
In an approach that differs from many other lab designers in the region, we apply our unique Total Design Strategy™ technique to help clients achieve efficient usage of space and ergonomics design, while at the same time capitalizing on our understanding of the scientific processes to achieve safety, practicality and a more efficient research workflow. We consider Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) issues to be relevant even before a facility is constructed. By performing a proper hazard assessment and with an initial understanding of the proposed lab processes, potential operational issues that may require attention during the design process are identified. Finally, we apply energy efficient engineering solutions to help ensure that proper containment and functionality are achieved.
Architectural and engineering firms in various parts of Asia have frequently called upon us to support them in their R&D facility projects for both academic institutions and companies.
