Most of our clients do not necessarily want to install a Laboratory in isolation. Often, we are also asked to provide project write-up zones, showers and wash rooms, kitchens, breakout areas and meeting suites. Office Principles have been doing this for nearly 35 years and can provide the complete package on a design and build basis.
