How to Ensure a Positive Relationship Between Lab and Design Teams

Cedars Sinai

To deliver a project on time, on budget, and within the available space, all stakeholders need to make compromises throughout the design process to ensure a successful project. A recent article by Senior Project Manager Valerie DeLoach shares strategies to ensure the best possible outcome for a project, using the Cedars-Sinai Biomanufacturing Center as a case study to showcase successful client outcomes.

Strategies Include:

  • Hire a qualified team
  • Establish a culture of collaboration, shared vision
  • Identify space-saving strategies before any design work begins
  • Use technology to build consensus and reduce changes in construction

The article appears in the October print issue of Lab Manager and is available online, "Lab Design and Furnishings."
