Diagnostic Testing Laboratory
CSI, a clinical/ pathology testing laboratory serving doctors and hospital clients across the United States, offers several diagnostic testing protocols, including Histology, Flow Cytometry, Cytogenetics, and Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization (FISH).
In 2010, as a result of growth in its client base, CSI purchased a new 60,000 sf building for retrofit and hired Lord Aeck Sargent to design and construct a new corporate headquarters, laboratory, and laboratory support space that would meet its for a five-year window before further expansion was required. Additionally, CSI commissioned LAS to Master Plan growth beyond the initial 40,000 sf build-out into the unimproved space.
LAS established goals for the project and the environmental criteria for all spaces. LAS interviewed both administration and laboratory staff and developed personnel projections and space matrices to build a Program of Requirements. LAS created work flow, process flow and waste flow diagrams which were applied to the new facility to narrow design options, and provided layouts for locating and serving the owner-furnished analytical equipment.
