This 6,000 sq. ft. incubator laboratory posed a unique challenge, needing to satisfy the diverse research needs of two industry-leading biomedical firms.

  • Includes new fume hoods, biosafety cabinets, medical gas piping, and purified water lines, as well as casework adaptively reused from Mass Biomedical Initiative’s previous laboratory space
  • Lab provides flexible workspace that can accommodate changing research needs, including ceiling-mounted utility panels for moveable workstations
  • Extensive coordination during pre-construction and construction ensured the requirements of both firms were consistently met
