Baystate Health Microbiology Lab
SBA completed an 11,000-square-foot microbiology laboratory for our long-term partners at Baystate Medical Center. Located in Holyoke, Massachusetts, this wet lab facility includes a cold room, small containment lab, and laboratory support spaces.
Our design process focused on the study of samples, material, and staff workflows, using Lean principles to reduce staff fatigue and sample turnaround times. These factors led to a large ballroom concept lab, where mobile workbenches and overheard service panels are used to promote flexibility and adaptability.
An energy-efficient lighting design complements the open lab organization. Large clerestory windows share light between the core and perimeter spaces to highlight the vibrant accent colors of the interior design.
