Full-Building Design

We bring all of our design disciplines to bear on:

  • Functionality — Day-to-day facility operational needs.
  • Structural resilience — Weather hardening up to EF5 tornados, protection from hurricanes and seismic events, EMP shielding for man-made threats.
  • Redundancy – MEP based on ANSI/TIA-942.
  • Security — NERC-CIP compliance, exterior fencing, barriers and berms, interior cameras, and badging.
  • Sustainability — Electric vehicle parking stations, stormwater management, indoor air quality.

Custom Control Room Design

The Control Room is the heartbeat of your operations. Design matters. Lamb designs modern Control Rooms from the operators out, putting their needs at the forefront — from their personal workspace, to how they interact with others, work with technology, and use employee amenities. We develop a Control Room that adheres to — and often establishes — industry trends and best practices, and creates an environment that helps attract and retain operators, maximizing productivity and situational awareness.

Control Room Ergonomics

Seating and air quality for operator comfort, sight lines to video displays and appropriate lighting to reduce eye strain, acoustics to reduce distractions, all guided by ISO 11064.

Custom-designed Consoles

Ergonomic Control Room workstations that offer leading-edge technology, durability, sit-stand capabilities, personal environmental controls, storage, and collaboration spaces.

State-of-the-art Video Solutions

Control Room video display options, such as narrow-bezel LCD, video cubes, and direct-view LED, and innovative processing options.

Control Room Support Spaces

Overview and conference rooms, war rooms, kitchens, break and bunk rooms, and fatigue-mitigation rooms, based on client-specific needs.
