Cambridge, MA – G. Greene Construction was recently awarded a contract from The Broad Institute to provide construction management services for its 75 Ames Street third-floor renovation project in Cambridge. Work includes renovations to 4,800sf of laboratory space to accommodate the LIU GROUP in its move from Oxford Street.

Laboratory renovations will consist of two new warm rooms, modified bench space and laboratory sinks, with vented chemical storage cabinets in the existing tissue culture room. An emergency shower will be added to the tissue culture room, and new mobile bench areas will be composed of existing inventory. G. Greene will also complete renovations to the existing office area totaling approximately 2,800sf. The renovations include updating a large corner office and meeting space.

Completion is scheduled for February 2017. The project team is made up of Rick Shearns, project executive; Michael Robarge, assistant project manager; and Mark Taylor, project superintendent, who will be working in conjunction with Wilson Architects of Boston and The Broad Institute.
