Boston, MA Margulies Perruzzi (MP) has expanded its science studio with the addition of Imran Khan, AIA, LEED AP as associate principal and Sarah Attia, LEED AP ID+C as an interior designer.

As an associate principal, Khan will be responsible for leading the overall direction of the science studio, including managing and recruiting staff, overseeing projects, and developing new client relationships. In her role as interior designer, Attia will provide design, technical detailing, and space planning services from concept development through construction documentation for MP’s science clients.

According to the 2019 Industry Snapshot from Mass Bio, Boston is the number one hub for life sciences in the world. Massachusetts is home to a thriving life sciences community, the most highly educated workforce in the U.S., and universities and hospitals that are global leaders in biotech research.  Over 12.4 million s/f of commercial lab space has been added to Massachusetts in the last 10 years, an increase of 70%. Additionally, investment in the industry has again reached an all-time-high, with $4.8 billion of venture capital (VC) investment in Massachusetts biopharma companies in 2018.

“Boston’s life sciences employment growth has not only outpaced overall job growth at a pace of nearly four to one in the last year, but the region has also recorded the largest five-year employment growth out of any top life sciences cluster in the U.S.,” said Daniel Perruzzi, Jr., AIA, LEED AP, principal and senior partner at Margulies Perruzzi. “We are excited to welcome Imran and Sarah to our design team. They bring a broad range of skills and experience designing a variety of laboratory, technology, and healthcare projects, and they understand our firm’s focus on creating high-quality design and workplace strategies that support our clients’ business goals.”
