About this Project

Bayer Healthcare (now Siemens) moved its Blood-gas Analyzing R&D Division into a new building to aggregate its disbursed operations into one new facility. Complete with labs, workspace, training, and customer briefing center, this building was an important part of the company’s focus on the design of innovative testing equipment.

As with many labs, a key component was the creation of a centralized “services corridor” that housed common gasses, a tank farm, ROD distribution, and electrical distribution. This core area reduced redundancy of equipment, increased flexibility over time, and allowed efficient service and maintenance of critical infrastructure.
