Pairwise Golden Belt Project

  • Location: Durham, NC
  • Size: 32,000 SF
  • Market: Life Sciences
  • Client: Pairwise

This was a unique project that included the transformation of 31,809 SF of a historic tobacco warehouse with exposed wood columns, beams, and floors into a complete plant science lab with a chef’s kitchen. The new lab space supported the complete life cycle of plant science from media/seed to the plate. Lab space included research lab, freezer farm, tissue culture lab with BSL2 room, and growth chambers. We coordinated and supervised the installation of 2 owner supplied growth chambers. We also installed a new generator to back all lab space and, due to grade changes, we installed a retaining wall to create a level platform.
