Laboratory and Vivarium Design

As we are both architects and laboratory planners, we understand how research spaces, process and flow impact on the facility as a whole, and work with the design team to integrate a solution that ensures the building works efficiently and safely.

NXL has designed more than a million square feet of laboratories in academia and industries. The firm is thoroughly familiar with Good Laboratory Practices, as well as the stringent requirements of Health Canada, Agriculture Canada, The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and The US FDA.
