Quest Diagnostics

West Hills, California
January 1st 2005

Upon acquiring Unilab, Quest Diagnostics consolidated its Los Angeles clinical laboratory operations into a single campus location. The vision was to employ “best in class” systems and processes to create an effective and efficient laboratory utilizing Six Sigma/Lean Design methodologies in the planning and design process. Comprising 250,000 square feet of diagnostic laboratories, distribution space and offices, a new 600-ton central plant and service yard outfitted with emergency generators and a DI (pure) water system, the facility promotes flexibility and synergy between departments with an open-plan system featuring shared natural light, timeless materials and modular lab benches.
