Regulatory Compliance and Assay Services Laboratories Expansion
This fit-out of existing shell space creates an expanded BSL-2 laboratory for the Biopharma Services group, which provides sample analysis, assay, and cell-based assay services.
By starting with Millipore’s draft program, HERA was able to flush out requirements and issues they had not considered such as keep certain functions of the lab (Luminex Stations) in their original location to allow more capacity for future expansion of other lab functions (Assay Stations).
The project includes lab support space, office space, and a relocated, expanded break room, and is designed to accommodate future expansion of the labs and office space, additional building support services, and conversion of the break room into a full-service cafeteria to support the rapid growth of these services.
This LEED Silver-certified project was planned with movable casework to maximize future flexibility and to take advantage of views and light from the large perimeter windows.
