Veterinary Diagnostic Reference Laboratory

Open, modern and invigorating diagnostic veterinary laboratories

Designing multiple new and renovated locations in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio as well as Louisville and Chicago for this 24/7 diagnostic reference laboratory the goal was to make their new facilities open, modern and invigorating.

Starting with the research and laboratory space, M+A worked closely with the project’s consulting engineers to design the lab for maximum flexibility, while also assuring the infrastructure could handle the lab’s plan for future growth.

Lab spaces include: hematology, parasitology, serology, microbiology and other specialty services.

The design layout of the largely open, office spaces allows for them to be flooded with natural light through perimeter windows and the incorporation of DIRTT glass panels for the private offices. To invigorate the break room and the lobby area, M+A planned the placement of environmental graphics and branding pieces.
