In 1978, Mr. Clubb left his clinical and chemical laboratory technology career behind and joined Earl Meyer & Associates, an offshoot of the federal government's Hill-Burton program, which was responsible for the growth of hospital construction in the USA from 1946 through 1997. By 1980 he had become well-known and respected in the industry and thus the country's most prolific and prominent healthcare architect, Cannon Design, sought him to establish an in-house expertise in Medical Equipment Planning. The service later evolved to include his other passion, laboratory planning and design. For the subsequent 13 years, he served in similar roles at the architectural firms of Smith, Perkins & Will, and finally with Anderson, DeBartolo and Pan.
At the request of the San Bernardino County Medical Center Project (now the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center), in 1993, Mr. Clubb created the independent firm TheSPECGroup (Space Planning and Equipment Consultants). The firm has been in continuous operation for 27 years. During those 27 years, the firm was rebranded twice to reflect changing clientele and markets. The late 90's brought the firms expansion into Industrial and Education markets and the company was rebranded as Fac-Tech (Facilities and Technologies consulting). With the ever changing healthcare, science and industrial markets, the final rebranding occurred in 2009 as i-SCIENCE. The 'i' represents the integrated marketplace, wherein previsouly segregated branches of science have joined in a transparent manner to seek solutions to todays most vexing problems. An example of which is the movement known as 'bench to bedside', wherein Academic Medical Centers now feature integrated bioinformatic and translational research components.
Over it's history, i-SCIENCE has been responsible for hundreds of projects, both healthcare and science, billions of dollars in laboratory construction, and billions more in scientific and healthcare equipment programming, planning, procurement, receipt and installation.
