Facility Design in a Dynamic, Growing Market

Project Details

Client:

SI-BONE, a medical device pioneer

Opportunity:

A growing company needed more warehouse, machine shop, and office space

Approach:

Engaged the client’s team to apply phased, integrated layout design methods

  • Defined business priorities for the facility and critical factors for evaluation
  • Reviewed types of spaces, equipment, and personnel to validate how those spaces interact with each other and the customer
  • Optimized space plan and layout options through cross-functional workshops and scaled CAD models
  • Incorporated quality and regulatory compliance factors in the design
  • Developed utility and engineering requirements matrix for design collaboration
  • Planned, sourced, and coordinated equipment acquisition efforts

Results:

  • Reduced overall facility footprint requirement, enabling a wider property market opportunity and reduced build-out cost
  • Designed a flexible space plan for machine shop and warehouse flow to accommodate future growth
  • Supported challenging permit submittal timelines in the middle of a pandemic without compromise to operational layout

“For a rapidly evolving company to expand its footprint in a highly sought real estate market, it was critical that we right-sized our facilities for today and tomorrow while keeping property costs down. Merging data with an integrated design approach allowed us to quickly assess available properties and select a winning option.”
