  • iab were approached by Dust Architects to consult with Ransom Naturals to design a facility that converted an existing empty warehouse into a series of working laboratories, offices, and meeting rooms. A key objective from the client was to ensure this design could be easily expanded in the future, with only one third of the building being refurbished during this phase of the installation.

    Installation of a new mezzanine structure during the warehouse refurbishment created the laboratory and office areas, allowing for a double height atrium to the entrance area. This showcased the newly designed front façade of the building which combined new cladding with a glazed curtain wall. The three laboratories (Food and Beverage, Instrument, and R&D) were individually designed to suit the specific requirements of each, including custom furniture and a walk-in fume cupboard. The design was finished with the installation of a three-way fast action roller shutter airlock between the laboratories, warehouse and the area left for future expansion.
