Advanced Therapeutics Testing Lab Fit Out

Philadelphia, PA

This multi-phase project encompassed the fit-out of a sprawling 120,000 sq. ft. space to facilitate the relocation and expansion of BSL-2 and BSL-2+ research and development laboratories. The comprehensive scope included master planning and design, allocating 50,000 sq. ft. for office space and 70,000 sq. ft. for laboratories, support facilities, and utilities. 

Operating within the framework of a three-story LEED Gold-certified building, our team navigated intricate challenges, notably the need for seamless functionality of labs across multiple floors, leveraging redundant systems situated on a rooftop platform. Overcoming constraints such as tight floor-to-floor heights and limited ground-level space, we capitalized on these challenges as opportunities for innovative design solutions. 

The architectural and mechanical design of the laboratories was conceived with adaptability at its core, featuring flexible pods capable of modular arrangement to accommodate evolving research groups. Moreover, all mechanical systems were engineered with the versatility to accommodate shifts in BSL containment approaches, providing the necessary agility to support the growth of research endeavors.
