St. Jude Advanced Technology Center
Sylmar, CA


The St Jude Cardiac Rhythm Management Division needed a new state-of-the-art training facility, located within an existing industrial / office building already located on campus. The renovations could not interrupt the 24-hour manufacturing process in the floor below. The new facility would also focus on the history and technology of the company’s pacemaker device.

Solution
The project was created in two phases:
• Conference | Learning Center
• Advanced Technology Center

Phase One included three conference rooms, providing learning opportunities for up to 29 staff and guest physicians. Advanced presentation systems were planned for, including video, and a computer network for video and laptops, to provide a fully interactive teaching environment.

Phase Two included a state-of-the-art simulated electrophysiology laboratory, office workstations, waiting area, restrooms, conference room, training room and control center.

The design itself provides a contemporary yet warm and accommodating environment that furthers the St. Jude brand as a leader in the medical field. Careful consideration of the design of custom casework, the function of specialized presentation tools, and the selection of furniture and equipment all support the design.
