A specialist medtech start-up is looking for a foothold in a region packed with health industry opportunities. The company is growing fast, adding global talent to its roster and scoping for a base where its international team can feel at home.
With its R&D efforts picking up pace, the company needs a workspace agile enough to support its ever-shifting innovation work.
The must-haves? First, the company needs a space that can be carved up and configured for different uses – from labs, to production facilities, data centres, and admin offices. Next, with a lot of large, heavy equipment to install, the start-up needs a hub with the space and specs to take on its tech. Finally, with its sights set on future R&D partnerships, the company needs a space that can be changed and rearranged without the need for a structural overhaul or a pause in work.
PULSE is tasked with sketching the blueprint for a specialist start-up work environment. Everything about the space has to be flexible – ready to adapt as the company grows.
With R&D, research & innovation, research labs and production labs to accommodate, the design also has to accommodate some niche needs
Armed with the client’s wish list, PULSE brings together a multidisciplinary team with expertise across architecture and medtech to come up with a custom plan. They propose two distinct but complementary workspaces for the company:
Buoyed by networking efforts and a strong HR strategy, the company’s location gives it new visibility, as well as a fresh pool of talent and contacts from world-leading labs.
Over time, the company gathers steam, successfully developing a new product and boosting its visibility on the world stage. All while forging vital public- and private-sector partnerships in the fast-moving Swiss market.
