Beckman Coulter

Brea, California
January 1st 2009

Challenged to consolidate two campuses into one unified world headquarters, Beckman Coulter engaged Gensler to transform its work environment through a project encompassing the renovation of a five-building campus comprising work space, labs, manufacturing and associated amenities. A team composed of integrated design disciplines provided the biomedical instrument provider with workplace strategy, planning and interior design, branding and environmental graphics, sustainable strategies and base-building architectural design. The resulting headquarters is an activity-based workplace centered on the company’s core values of wellness and innovation, providing a range of spaces and settings for collaborating, learning and socializing.
