Brown University has selected Ballinger and Deborah Berke Partners to design a dynamic integrated life sciences building in Providence’s Jewelry District neighborhood. The building will create new laboratory space for collaborative, high-impact research.

The selection committee was impressed with both firms’ portfolios as well as our shared focus on engaging a wide range of stakeholders, calling out our collective world-class approach to academic building design as well as exceptional technical skills for creating laboratory and science spaces.

Ballinger Senior Principal Terry Steelman, FAIA, LEED AP is delighted to return to campus, having designed Brown’s Sidney E. Frank Hall for the Life Sciences, which opened in 2006. He highlighted the importance of future flexibility in laboratory buildings. “We aim to satisfy the work needs of the initial occupants and the current science but not to be so specific and customized that the space can’t evolve as science — and scientists — change,” he said.
