Sustainability case study
Skanska performed this expansion project, which included a 155,000-SF research center lab and 80,000-SF of renovated space in an existing research building. The research center featured perimeter offices for chemistry and biology functions with adjacent interior laboratory spaces designated for either discovery biology or discovery chemistry. The research space included a BSL3 lab. The first floor is primarily used for mechanical and building/lab support functions, while the fifth floor, or the roof elevation, also includes an elevated, separately enclosed mechanical penthouse. The research center lab achieved LEED Gold certification. Current operations remained on-going while the existing four-story research building was renovated. Significant demolition and renovation took place on the upper floors, while minor renovations only occurred on the lower floors. Mechanical and electrical systems were replaced, upgraded and redistributed.
