Alhambra Agora


Client Stories

Alhambra Agora

Alhambra Agora, LLC engaged BAM to lead the adaptive reuse of an old line industrial property into the state-of-the-art HATCH Bioscience Facility. Our team is giving special consideration to the market repositioning of the property, combining the varied elements of renovation, ground-up work and technical conversion of the factory and warehouse into a practical and visually exciting space to attract leading scientists and researchers.

Currently in progress, HATCH has been highlighted in the news and throughout A/E/C and biotech circles for its community-focused goal of providing the resources for biotech startups to hatch and grow in Los Angeles. BAM has been asked to present our innovative design for HATCH at industry events for LA Bioscience Hub, local chapters of the AIA and Urban Land Institute (ULI), and the Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Economic Development.

SCOR


Client Stories

SCOR

BAM began working with SCOR in 2003 on a unified corporate image at multiple US locations. Working closely with the real estate team, BAM quickly responded with options and recommendations for different buildings based on initial programming data. Once the real estate was secured, BAM began the design process with the client’s goals in mind. One of the world’s largest global reinsurance companies, SCOR was faced with the need to acquire additional office space. Strategic planning of resources became a critical issue. Site location, financial impact and preserving corporate culture became central concerns during the initial planning period. By drilling down into detailed budgets and schedules, BAM was able to identify paths for getting the most impact for the least cost, successfully meeting the clients financial, aesthetic, and functional goals. This was accomplished by providing the physical environment needed to perform at their customary high level of professional achievement, while reflecting their success and stature to clients and guests. .

To date, BAM has collaborated with SCOR on projects all across the United States and parts of South America.

CBS Corporation


Client Stories

CBS Corporation

CBS outlined three specific goals for the update of the Sports office: renovate the current office space, expand into the vacant area of the floor, and ensure the space has high-end finishes on a plain vanilla budget. Hearing the client requests, BAM designed an environment that went beyond CBS’ expectations. Incorporating the CBS Sports brand into the design, the decorative glass partitions throughout the office feature images of athletes from football, basketball, and other popular sports aired on the CBS network. A key detail of the space is the executive conference room, designed as an oval shape to resemble a football and with complementing light fixtures to mimic the pattern of football laces.

Now complete and occupied, the new workspace houses an executive area and the departments of Administration, Finance, Creative, and Marketing. The heads of each department were thrilled to see BAM’s creative and unifying approach that speaks to the passion of CBS Sports. BAM's collaboration with CBS continues with in-progress projects across many departments.

Regeneron


Client Stories

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

The pharmaceutical company Regeneron has developed a worldwide reputation for forging new paths in creating drugs. On the recommendation of another client, Regeneron asked us to collaborate on a lab renovation and create an innovative space that would include a robotics facility and conference center. The project demonstrated how troubled older buildings on their campus could be transformed into state-of-the-art R&D facilities. That facility is now a favorite research space of the client.

BAM then won a full building, 136,000 sf fit-out, competing against much more prominent firms. As we had done before, we showed how BAM would meet the aggressive schedule and were awarded the project, completing it on time and with virtually no change orders. That success has led to a host of large R&D, administrative, and interior build-out projects with the company.

Yale New Haven Health


Client Stories

Yale New Haven Health

Our first opportunity with Yale New Haven Hospital was a Hybrid Operating Suite. We were fortunate to be teamed with a client that wanted to expand the thinking of what an Operating Room should look like. The project was at the vanguard as one of the first hybrid operating rooms in the USA. Commended for its innovative and patient-focused design, the project went on to become a model for similar projects at YNHH and other hospitals. It also set BAM’s reputation, leading to over 20 projects to date with Yale New Haven Hospital.

Other notable projects range from a very progressive Pediatric MRI suite that redefines the patient experience to a master plan and renovation of YNHH’s Shoreline Medical Center, which includes an expansion of their Emergency Department.

Caltech


Client Stories

Caltech

Caltech engaged BAM on a series of projects to improve campus amenities and create exciting spaces for collaboration. BAM worked closely with Caltech to outline options to modernize the classrooms and support areas, provide flexible facilities to adapt to the changing needs of higher education, and design to attract alumni as well as incoming classes. Beginning with a dated seminar room, our team is designing a space with unique ceiling details that improve acoustics, provide better seating and technology to support and engage students, and an installation of larger windows to allow for more natural light. The new seminar space will be more inclusive of ADA requirements, allowing students the option to sit where they feel most comfortable in the room.

A rooftop seminar space, BAM has proposed comfortable seating across all areas of the roof. The varied rooftop seating takes advantage of the year-round warm weather to provide alternative learning environments for students and faculty to collaborate outdoors and serve as an outdoor classroom.
