Through careful planning, extensive coordination, and constant reassessment of strategies, the design and engineering teams fit a new program and energy-efficient mechanical, engineering, and plumbing infrastructure within the highly unorthodox space while protecting its historic fabric.
The space can now be used for cutting-edge research by graduate students, established biotech companies, and life science start-ups in the community.
