Sparking brilliance and scientific breakthroughs
The life sciences industry delivers critical solutions from bringing products to market to creating new vaccines, medical devices, and other pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovations that help tackle the world’s most urgent challenges. Never has the importance of life sciences been more visible, especially in the last two-and-a-half years. This is driving the demand for world-class facilities that support the technical experts and talent and keep companies on the leading edge.
Creating spaces for life sciences companies requires specialized engineering expertise, a full understanding of the regulatory environment, and innovative design. Dean brings a robust chemical engineering background along with decades of construction experience in the biotech and pharmaceutical space that will help our clients realize their vision and enable us to deliver innovative spaces that spark brilliance.
Building a global life sciences footprint
Our experienced professionals have partnered with top tier clients like Boston Scientific, Merck, Shire, Smith+Nephew, and Olympus to deliver award-winning facilities.
Boston Scientific, Brussels, Belgium: Outgrowing their existing space, Boston Scientific developed a workplace model for their new location. To foster creativity and promote connectivity while enabling future growth, we used a neighborhood design concept with collaboration and focus areas to connect and collaborate as needed as well as provided space for quiet, focused technical work.
Merck, Sydney, Australia: After outgrowing their space, Merck needed a workplace that was inspiring and vibrant while considering the needs of multiple teams and their varied responsibilities and workstyles. To address the convergence of various teams, their office layout is designed around task-specific "zones." The space also has bespoke features such as a lab, training rooms, and a library.
As a global leader in designing and delivering tailored commercial real estate solutions, Dean will help us continue to create workspaces and facilities that blend technical understanding with a human touch.
"With 16 years of industry-specific expertise in life sciences, Unispace Life Sciences (formerly BioPharma Engineering) has a proven track record in this space. I believe their unique, integrated model combining strategy, design, and construction is especially well-suited for the fast-moving, yet highly regulated life sciences space. I am thrilled to join this team of life sciences experts and elevate Unispace’s reputation as the go-to design and construction partner for pharmaceutical and biotech companies.” –Dean Poillucci, Head of Life Sciences, Americas
Welcome, Dean! We look forward to continuing to create spaces that help inspire the pharmaceutical breakthroughs that transform lives.
