DC Arup Panel v3

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.

BAM: Solving Complex Design Problems

Ascension&StVincent_graphic_blog

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.

Northwell Health LIJ Forest Hills held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the completed renovation and expansion of Obstetrics and Labor & Delivery, now known as New Life Center.

Season’s Greetings from BAM

20171212_Frontconcentric_3-back_6b_digital-a

People all around the country came together on August 21, 2017 to marvel at the total eclipse.

To commemorate the unifying experience of the August eclipse, BAM selected the Total Eclipse of the Sun stamp to send with our holiday cards this year. The first heat-sensitive US postal stamp, a touch of the thumb reveals the moon beneath the eclipsed form.

We chose to highlight the recent eclipse as an inspiring reminder that we are all on this earth together.

One of BAM’s passions is our annual donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Each year, we are proud to support Make-A-Wish in its mission of granting “the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.”

Whether realizing a dream of Wish Kids or sharing in a rare total eclipse, these experiences are a reminder that shared passion has a tremendous effect.

HATCH: Urban Landscape Revitalized and Repositioned

33_HATCH happenings_2017

LA Business Journal features a BAM designed project, HATCH, as front page news for its unique adaptive reuse approach to support a burgeoning biotech neighborhood.

BAM’s landmark project has also caught the attention of respected industry organizations, such as the Los Angeles chapter of the Urban Land Institute. As one of the key sites on the sold-out ULI Fall Meeting tour Adaptive Use: Obsolete Industrial to New Economy, HATCH is a prime example of how revitalizing spaces bring new life and industry to a community.

In addition to the Fall Meeting, ULI’s magazine Urbanland highlights the influence of HATCH in the article Building a Bioscience Cluster in East Los Angeles. Co-written by Fiona Lyons of Agora Partners and Tulsi Patel of ELP Advisors and LA Bioscience Hub, the article delves into how HATCH is fostering a local culture of life sciences.

Agora Partners and ASG Real Estate engaged BAM to lead the adaptive reuse of an old line industrial property into the state-of-the-art HATCH Bioscience Facility. Our team is giving special consideration to the market repositioning of the property, combining the varied elements of renovation, ground-up work and technical conversion of the factory and warehouse into a practical and visually exciting space to attract leading scientists and researchers. Currently in progress, HATCH has been highlighted in the news and throughout A/E/C and biotech circles for its community-focused goal of providing the resources for biotech startups to hatch and grow in Los Angeles.
