Life Sciences pROJECTS

From biotech to DNA testing, biologics and beyond, Sterling Construction has extensive expertise constructing highly-functional, beautiful buildings for clients in the life sciences arena. Typically built in occupied settings where safety, logistics and minimal disruption to business operations are critical, Sterling Construction has mastered the art and science of completing life sciences projects to help clients gain more value out of their space.

Originally estimated as an 18-week project, Curis presented a challenge to compress their 23,000 sq. ft. lab and headquarters office in 14 weeks. Orchestrating logistics between the design team, tenant, owner and trade contractors, we employed (2) shifts around the clock to produce their tech-savvy offices, conference rooms and laboratory in record time. Coupled with safety challenges presented due to Covid-19, the combined teams did a remarkable job constructing a beautiful, functional building to optimize Curis’ business operations.

Typical of many Life Sciences construction projects, Orig3n required the design, conversion and building of a new state-of-the-art facility within an occupied setting. The 19,000 sq. ft. project included converting existing office space to high-tech lab facilities, in parallel with new MEP infrastructure to support their high-tech, modern atmosphere.

A leading life sciences organization providing life-saving biologic therapies for cancer, rare diseases and other serious conditions, the Elektrofi project included the conversion of an existing 9800 sq. ft. of office space into a precision, high-tech laboratory to optimize their research and testing initiatives. Occupied by tenants above and below, Sterling collaborated off hours and shutdown work with multiple tenants to construct a highly-functional lab with minimal disruption to business operations on all floors.

An advanced developer of next generation of synthetic lethal therapies to treat cancer, the Cyteir build was the first “office to lab” conversion project completed by Sterling Construction. Designed and built in concert with multiple niche partners, the initial Cyteir build earned Sterling a 2nd conversion project becoming the catalyst for multiple other Life Sciences construction jobs for Cyteir in the future.

The Ledgemont – GTMI project consisted of converting a parking garage into two separate lab spaces. We installed a 2-hour fire separation between the newly habitable space along with an integrated vibration isolation system to completely segregate the upper level parking areas from the occupied space. Then we installed HVAC, electrical, plumbing, RODI and PH adjustment systems. In addition, we constructed a vivarium lab for one of the tenants. Sections of exterior walls were removed to install new glass storefront system. Exterior upgrades include new sidewalks, stairs, new planting areas, retaining walls and lighting.
