Health, Science, & Education

Demographics, regulations, and social influence is changing how, when, and where people receive the benefits of healthcare, advancements in science, and education as well as adding to the number of people who receive these benefits. These changes impact real estate decisions among healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, companies requiring high-tech manufacturing, and universities, as these organizations evolve to stay competitive in a global market while remaining relevant in their missions.

ESD offers an in-depth understanding of how investments in real estate need to support the vision, mission, and strategies of healthcare providers, science-based companies, and universities. Our team is organized to provide expertise relative to the complexity and criticality of building infrastructure systems for these organizations where attention to detail fosters an environment to research, develop, manufacture, or provide care that improves the quality of life for people throughout the world. From systems analysis and code review through building repositioning or regulatory justification, ESD’s team offers value for health, science, and education organizations.


The healthcare facilities we design are fully integrated with life-saving technologies that prevent the spread of disease, provide emergency backup in the event of power outages, and assist in securing important medical records and building assets.

Science & Research

Innovation and exploration with responsibility to stakeholders is a driving force for everyday operations and business goals for companies with extensive science and research functions. Our science and research clients span industries from pharma and biotech to electronic component manufacturing and sensory laboratories. Often, the companies we develop workplace solutions for require the capabilities to provide consulting engineering solutions for their laboratory spaces.


Computer labs, art centers, libraries, student residences, recreational facilities, dining facilities, auditoriums, theatres, gymnasiums, natatoriums, classrooms, and distance learning programs are all components of modern education. Our capability to utilize a consultative approach for integrating design and engineering of infrastructure systems with technology systems results in flexible, efficient, sustainable, maintainable, and reliable campus environments.
