The life sciences industry is growing — and so is bkm.

The life sciences community is rapidly expanding in Southern California, consisting of a wide range of applications including pharmaceuticals, biomedical innovations, and general healthcare. To stay on pace to meet the growing needs of these startups and established players alike, bkm OfficeWorks has expanded its reach. Our ground-breaking pivot further cements us as the leading Southern California furniture dealer and makes us a better partner to our life sciences clientele. 

bkm is also debuting a robust client portfolio for on- and off-carpet lab furniture and accessories, becoming the region’s only one-stop shop for furnishing and project management needs. We are the first in our industry to pursue this side of the life sciences and healthcare furnishing business in conjunction with our existing workplace and medical design and furniture capabilities. In addition, we have created a life sciences laboratory showroom that welcomes collaboration and education within the industry. Our brand-new showroom in our San Diego Showroom offers a wide-array of offerings to accommodate the growing industry.

Enhancing the Client Experience 

Previously, lab furnishings were typically featured using an isolated boutique approach. It required multiple vendors, long project timelines, and clients managing project scope. bkm bridged this gap and the stressors it created for the life sciences industry. We have created a holistic solution to streamline the experience by having it all under one umbrella. Our new offerings allow us to be the single point of contact and trusted expert for managing technology, furniture, and laboratory needs. 

Clients are encouraged to visit our showroom to collaborate with our experts to identify the pieces needed to support their space. We have worked alongside our trusted vendors and manufacturers to offer a variety of life sciences laboratory layouts to support functionality between on- and off-carpet workspaces. This enhances the work environment for life science professionals, creating more transitional and productive spaces fostering authentic learning
