Performance Design

During our 87-year tenure, Strang has guided clients through some of the most technically advanced and high-performance projects—from federally regulated scientific cleanrooms to world-renowned symphony concert halls. This includes our innovative direction on nationally awarded university research and teaching laboratories, analytical healthcare facilities, and advanced manufacturing centers.

Within this edition of SyncMAGAZINE, we take a closer look at yet another type of complex project—the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. Here, farmers/producers, agribusiness, researchers, and educators must safely and collaboratively coexist within a highly flexible infrastructure. All four groups are constantly in motion and the facility design must empower each one of them. Consider how today’s farmers count upon a healthy stock to maintain a safe, quality-driven operation. Agribusiness requires decision support metrics that are prompt, precise, and actionable. Market values, supply indexes, and distribution strategies are impacted by this data. Such data is the result of researchers working in spaces that ensure “no-compromise” sample integrity, safely optimize process flow, and easily adapt to ever-evolving study protocols. Our future leaders in animal agriculture require space to learn and discover the latest intelligence and practices in food biosafety and biosecurity.

Each of these complex project types requires rigorous integration of architectural design, engineered systems, and interiors. Decades of Strang insights are applied with our client’s intelligence and insight to achieve remarkable results. Our clients are world-class scientists, artists, educators, diagnosticians, researchers, and industry leaders. When these groups think in sync, great things are about to happen.


Each of our clients recognizes the tangible value of cooperation and collaboration. Together, we create, nurture, and implement a comprehensive project environment where everyone’s voice is heard and respected. These types of projects are far too complex to proceed in any other manner. One idea can spark an entire room. That singular thought can then launch dozens of solutions. It’s this process that brings a design to life.

As engineers, architects, and designers, our role extends far beyond just blueprints. The comfort and safety of the building’s occupants is an essential consideration in design. Great office design will install measures to address potential work hazards and keep staff and data safe from the very beginning of the design process. In other words, prevention is the best policy.
While earlier we focused primarily on low voltage design, now it’s time to dive deeper into its close relation: audio/visual (AV) design. AV design is the process of understanding the communication and entertainment needs and goals of a client and thoughtfully developing technology systems to address and meet them.
When planning your new or renovated buildings, the subject of low voltage systems–the backbone of building technology–needs to occur right away rather than be left behind as an afterthought. Proper advanced planning can ensure your low-voltage systems help you operate at maximum levels of performance. And that’s more important now than ever.
