Tech Town Biomedical Research Laboratories project is a tenant fit-out of the 4th floor of the Tech Town business and research incubator. The research is concentrated in Drug Discovery, X-ray, Cytogenetic and DNA Research.
Tech Town contracted for a very fast occupancy date, resulting in a 5 month schedule for design through construction. Given the long lead time for lab equipment, the DD/CD phase was consolidated from 12 weeks to 4 weeks. This was accomplished by strong team coordination between the lab architect and the contractor. Together they were able to streamline the documentation process and make cost informed product decisions. This resulted in laboratory equipment that was provided on schedule and within budget.
