BioPharmaceutical Technology Center
Promega Corporation is the largest privately held life sciences company in the world. It has been an honor to provide architectural, engineering and interior design services for this client for over 20 years. The BioPharmaceutical Technology Center is a state-of-the-art facility designed to meet the expanding office, manufacturing, research and development needs of Promega Corporation.
The facility is one of the first of its kind in the United States to allow contract manufacturing of biological products; it also meets FDA Good Manufacturing Practices and ISO 9000 design criteria. Laboratories accommodate various production methods including protein refolding, large-scale cell biology, organic synthesis and electromagnetic separations.
The “team architecture” concept was used in the design of office areas in order to promote interaction and flexibility. All offices are open and share a variety of common spaces including conference and lounge areas. The building also provides training labs, classrooms and a 300-seat auditorium available for use by the public. Arranged in lecture-style, fixed seating, the auditorium includes state-of-the-art rear projection and sound system equipment and a mobile podium with a central electronic control system. This shared-use auditorium is used by organizations and community members throughout the area. A full-service cafeteria and dining room accommodate dining, meeting and conference elements.
