National architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann today announces its new Science, Technology & Industry (STI) practice, providing an in-demand offering to companies in highly specialized industries.

The STI practice combines Bergmann’s decades of experience in engineering design services for manufacturing and research clients with recently added planning and architectural capabilities for pharmaceutical and biotech operations. This unique team of experts brings years of industry knowledge and understanding of business priorities and workflows which are integral to the success of these specialized projects.

Since its founding, Bergmann’s Research and Manufacturing practice has provided highly specialized engineering services to industrial and manufacturing companies. The practice has expanded since then to include scientific research organizations, with the firm building an extensive resume in the design of clean rooms, laboratories, GMP facilities and most recently cannabis and hemp facilities.

“Each facility our STI team works on is unique, complex, technical and regulated, as well as expensive and time-consuming to design and build, so a deep understanding of the industry is critical,” said Pete Giovenco, President and CEO, Bergmann. “The marriage of our engineering and architecture capabilities into this new practice, paired with our exceptional level of service, provides our clients with incredible value in addressing each facet of these intricate projects.”

Bergmann’s acquisition of Johnsrud Architects in 2019 balanced its existing engineering services with specialized architecture capabilities. Over 24 years, Johnsrud Architects became a leader in the planning and design of laboratories, as well as animal and production facilities, with a primary focus in the pharmaceutical and biotech categories. The team’s unique experience has made it a trusted advisor to many Fortune 100 companies as well as numerous emerging life science companies.

With the integration of teams, Bergmann’s STI practice now includes planners, architects and engineers who provide clients with a unique blend of specialized expertise and dedicated service tailored to a number of markets including biotechnology, cannabis and hemp, materials manufacturing, life science industries and pharmaceuticals. The STI practice’s core service offerings include programming and planning, laboratory planning, architecture, engineering, and client management services.

“The STI practice brings to life the visions that both Bergmann and Johnsrud had when we embarked on this collaboration,” said Charles Johnsrud, Principal, Bergmann. “We are excited to bring greater value to existing clients and explore how we can engage with new organizations that will benefit from our combined expertise in planning and designing their facilities.”
