The existing, single story structure at 6175 Nancy Ridge Dr. was de-signed to be a LEED Gold building and site renovation project to meet the grow-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 the building perimeter were necessary to increase the overall amount of exterior installed at all new openings, customized architectural sheet metal, and smooth panels completely transformed the look of this building, which was originally con-structed in 1982.
Extensive structural upgrades were performed throughout the building to support new mechanical infrastructure to support single pass air requirements for the lab areas. The project features many common areas amenities including a multi-pur-pose room, gaming area, break/lounge room, showers, and restrooms. In the rear courtyard area, a new lawn with a Bocce court, wood decks with overhangs, and a complete new landscape and lighting design were all installed to provide outside areas for tenants to gather and use for company functions.
