The existing, single story structure was designed to be a LEED Gold building and site renovation project to meet the growing tenant demand for flexible lab/office space for use in the emerging industrial biotechnology market. The existing interior lab space was completely demolished, along with 100% of the exterior landscaping, perimeter window systems, and MEP infrastructure. In addition to large portions of the existing shell that were removed to create dramatic new entry points at three locations, extensive modifications to the building perimeter were necessary to increase the overall amount of exterior window ling by over fifty percent. Energy efficient, dual pane glazing systems were installed at all new openings, customized architectural sheet metal, and smooth finished stucco applied over the existing exposed aggregate of the exterior wall panels completely transformed the look of this building, which was originally constructed in 1982.
