Architect, Laboratory Planner, Principal | The Clark Enersen Partners

This session identifies the feedback loop among the built environment, workplace culture, and the human-animal bond that makes our industry special. Setting the table with facility planning best practices, we will discuss how to access current real estate inventory, the effects on both external and internal perceptions, as well as the bottom line. The right facility doesn’t have to be expensive, but it must have the flexibility to mirror current market demands and provide employees with a sense of pride and comfort. With human animal bond at the forefront of current design trends, we will provide examples of how a facility can become an asset by creating long term value related to culture and heath.
