Research Facilities That Advance Better Science

The root of all good design is an understanding of human behaviour and how the physical environment can affect these behaviours. At HDR, we create sustainable facilities in which world-class scientists can discover cures for diseases, create new sources of clean energy, protect our resources and improve public health — enriching lives around the world. We are not afraid to explore and challenge long-held beliefs and assumptions. This reflects our on-going commitment to partnering with our clients to create spaces that solve the world’s great challenges for sustainable life: health, safety, food, water, and energy.
