This lab’s heart is a non-metallic acid lab with 3 fiberglass hoods, fiberglass ductwork, and fiberglass doors. During construction, we worked with end-users to coordinate the install of both new and relocated equipment. Work occurred around an existing, fully operational lab and was completed in two phases.

Bamboo Therapeutics a Pfizer Company

11,565 SF lab renovation for new tenant functions. This project upgraded and modified existing speculative labs for new tenant science. Renovated R&D and BSL2 labs are supported with new finishes throughout support areas. The end users were able to use much of the labs in their speculative state and therefore the construction was efficient and the schedule was timely. Existing casework remained in place alleviating the long lead for new.
