Lowell, MA – Bowdoin Construction recently completed a 20,000sf fit-out of new labs and office space for Rapid Micro Biosystems at 1001 Pawtucket Blvd. The project, designed by Facility Planning and Management, included selective demolition within an occupied work/lab environment, followed by the fit-out of a BL2 Biolab, offices, open workstations, and bathrooms.

The completed space includes new LED lighting, fluorescent lighting, epoxy floors, carpet tiles, epoxy paint, and biolab casework, as well as new RTUs, VAV, and FPT systems. All work was completed within eight weeks.

Rapid Micro Biosystems delivers the Growth Direct System, an automated, nondestructive rapid detection and enumeration technology based on the compendial method for microbial quality control in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The system automates and accelerates detection and enumeration in the areas of sterility testing, environmental monitoring, and bioburden testing, eliminating manual steps and analysis.
