  2. 2.   F IRM I NTRODUCTION Louviere, Stratton and Yokel, L.L.C. (LSY) provides planning, design, and construction phase services to government, academic and private sector clients. We are nationally recognized for our expertise in high technology projects including biocontainment and nanotechnology laboratories, animal facilities, imaging, and clinical facilities. Our design philosophy emphasizes the collaboration of architecture and science to produce innovative, aesthetic facilities responsive to client needs. We distinguish ourselves by combining small firm responsiveness with expertise ordinarily found in larger national firms. Each of our clients is assured of principal level involvement, top flight service and innovative design from start to finish. MISSION: The Principals at LSY share the common goal of creating innovative and functional workspaces for the academic and scientific research communities. LSY provides a wide range of animal facilities planning and design services, including the design of specialized spaces ranging from insectaries, imaging, and aquatics facilities to biohazard containment vivaria and laboratories BSL-2 through BSL-4.  We practice a knowledge-based team approach which respects and encourages client participation. This philosophy is the cornerstone on which LSY was founded and it continues to inspire our commitment to innovative and functional design. QUALITY: LSY has a proven track record of cost-efficient, on-time delivery of technically-challenging laboratory and animal facilities. We know the necessity of addressing today’s challenging security, chain of command, and safety issues. Our dedicated staff continually investigates the latest trends and technologies in planning, programming and design, to achieve maximum flexibility so that, as lab conditions and agendas evolve, changing equipment needs and shifts in program emphasis may be accommodated over the life of the building.    LOUVIERE, STRATTON & YOKEL, ARCHITECTS & LABORATORY PLANNERS
