Callison Architecture Launches Design Group Specializing in Life Sciences Facilities.

SEATTLE -- Callison Architecture announces the formation of a group dedicated to providing planning and design services to the Life Sciences market. The team, which includes consultant specialists, will offer architectural, regulatory/compliance and engineering services for the full spectrum of biotechnology facilities: R&D laboratories, pilot plants, clinical and full cGMP manufacturing plants.

The Seattle-based firm has been providing technical expertise to the health and science industry for more than 15 years, including for clients such as the University of Washington, Pacific Northwest Research Institute, Washington State University and Swedish Medical Center. Callison is currently working with Sabey Corporation on the conversion of a historic hospital building on Seattle's Providence campus to accommodate state-of-the-art research laboratories.

"The highly specialized nature of these facilities makes it a perfect fit for Callison," explains Callison Principal Jim Rothwell. "With our strength in innovative healthcare, collaborative workplace design and technical facilities as well as our established track record for delivering business-driven solutions, we can bring the specialized attention life sciences clients require to bring their products to market."

The group will be lead by Michael O'Hara, AIA, who has joined Callison as an Associate Principal. O'Hara comes to Callison from Eichleay Engineers Inc. in Concord, California where he was Vice President and Director of Facilities. While with Eichleay, O'Hara was responsible for managing the facilities division specializing in biotech and pharmaceutical projects ranging from research and development laboratories and clinical pilot facilities to cGMP manufacturing facilities for clients such as Genentech, Inhale Therapeutics and Aradigm Corp. O'Hara holds a BA in architecture from the University of Illinois and studied Chemical Engineering at Purdue University. He is a certified NCARB member and a founder of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE).

Callison provides planning and design services to retail, hospitality, residential, healthcare and corporate clients throughout the world. Based in Seattle, Callison is one of the largest architectural design firms in the United States with more than 400 professional staff. Callison's clients include Nordstrom, Inc., Gap, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Boeing, Hewlett-Packard, Nike, Guess, Sisters of Providence, Seibu Department Stores of Japan, and General Growth Properties. Callison is a member, along with TVS and WATG, of Insight Alliance, a global alliance of design industry leaders. For more information, please visit our website at
