“As a part of this project, we really focused on reimagining the lab team’s processes,” said Aaron Shepard, a principal and project leader with HED.
“We wanted to help Loyola optimize workflows and improve efficiencies, so the design exercises we went through focused on these kinds of major flow improvements,” he added.
