With nearly four decades of experience in design for research science facilities, Ken Ederington, AIA is an expert source on lab facility design. His recruitment represents a significant move for Carrier Johnson + CULTURE as we seek to expand the firm’s portfolio of work in design and planning of research space for corporate and institutional clients.
Before this latest move in his prodigious career, Ederington worked on dozens of laboratory design projects spanning three continents, as architect, planner and project manager. He is particularly well known and regarded for delivering labs that boost productivity and enhance performance outcomes, using cost-effective solutions for improving efficiency and occupant health and wellness. Ederington also boasts proficiency in skills related to lab facility tenant improvement and build-to-suit projects, research facilities, and corporate headquarters.
“Ken’s extensive laboratory design experience make him a major asset to our firm and our clients in the research, healthcare, and institutional sectors,” says Vincent Mudd, Managing Partner and Principal with Carrier Johnson + CULTURE. “We are proud and fortunate to have him join our team.”
Ederington received his Bachelor’s of Architecture at the University of Nebraska prior to embarking on his distinguished career and making his way to California. He has described his career trajectory as a happy accident, having as a student given little thought to any specialty area, much less laboratory design. “At the time, lab planning was new and complex, requiring considerable knowledge and research,” he says. “I was immediately hooked and have remained so. And I’m already enjoying working with the excellent team of architects and designers at Carrier Johnson + CULTURE.”
