The 9,000 square foot build-out within 201 Elliott serves as Nanostring Technologies’ interim lab and office facilities before its move into a long-term, more permanent home. The renovated space features a traditional 40/60 lab to office program – designed to meet the needs of future bio-tech tenants.

Unique scopes of work include:

  • Routing a path to the roof, through several occupied floors, to connect the lab’s fume hood into the roof-mounted exhaust fan
  • Upgrading the exterior glazing system to meet the current energy code
  • Managing the installation and power, utility, and data connections of relocated equipment and furniture.

Efficiency was key on this project, as the construction team came on board just as Nanostring finalized its leasing agreement with BioMed Realty. To meet the aggressive milestones and critical move-in date, the project team identified several opportunities to shave ten days off the schedule.
