From BAM to you, warm wishes for a joyous holiday season!
At BAM, we pride ourselves on our well-coordinated and highly collaborative teams. Upon arriving on-site for a client, members of the BAM NY team realized they were also coordinated in their clothing!
Excellent coordination, team!
Low energy labs are a vital contributor to building energy reduction. In this age of high energy costs and increasing evidence of climate change, Arup and other leading firms are taking a closer look at what can be done to reduce the environmental impact of lab facilities. Lowering energy use in labs takes place within a context of high safety standards, changing research needs, and new expectations for our workplaces.
Join Arup Principal Joshua Yacknowitz, BAM Principal Dan Castner, and other industry collaborators as they discuss how low energy labs are helping to address a range of long-term challenges as well as sector-specific drivers that are transforming the scientific research ecosystem.

SOLVING COMPLEX DESIGN PROBLEMS
Collaborating with St. Vincent’s Medical Center, BAM designed a high-end hybrid operating room for their Bridgeport hospital. Marrying hospitality with hard science resulted in the patient entering into an EP lab outfitted with relaxing, spa-level amenities. Upon discovering that surgery is needed, the space is instantly transformed into a sterile operating room.
The capacity to examine and perform surgery in one room resulted in reduced patient stress, the ability for doctors to provide more efficient treatment, and the hospital to gain higher patient throughput and profitability. A win-win-win for all parties involved.
Each quarter, our team gathers together outside of work for a BAM Outing. Each outing is planned by a different member of BAM, bringing us closer as a team through our individual interests. During our June outing, the New York BAMMERs took advantage of our location by visiting the nearby New Museum. The recently opened exhibitions fostered excitement and lively discussions among the BAM team. As designers of built environments, Thomas Bayrle’s Playtime exhibit especially interested our team through the immersive, repeating patterns and large-scale drawings.
The Los Angeles BAMMERs recent outing took the team on an adventure through Escape Room LA’s game The Pyramid. Reminiscent of the Legends of the Hidden Temple and Indiana Jones, the detailed, themed decor was of special interest to our team as a fun example of how architecture and design influences and improves a person’s experience.
By working together to solve a series of puzzles and complete challenges, The Pyramid was a way for everyone to have a great time through team building and the feeling of being action movie heroes.
Speaking engagements are an inspiring way to engage others by sharing insights as industry leaders. We are proud to announce that BAM team members Brian Spence and Helen Cohen are speaking at two upcoming events that delve into the evolving environment of architecture and design.
