Renovation for Ocular Therapeutix Begins

Building being renovated for Ocular Therapeutix

Beford, MA – Construction has begun for Ocular Therapeutix, an ophthalmic medical device and pharmaceutical company. This project, constructed by Erland, is a major renovation of an existing three-story, 70,000sf building located at 15 Crosby Drive in the Crosby Corporate Center in Bedford.

The architect on the project is TRIA Inc.

When complete, the building will house new open and private offices, conference rooms, lunch/meeting room, main lobby staircase, six cleanrooms, and lab support spaces.

The work is being executed while two existing clean rooms and a lab on the third floor are being occupied by Ocular. In order to manage the logistics of this scenario, the construction team was required to build temporary partitions, develop a life safety plan with safe means of egress, carefully maintain existing utility systems, and secure a certificate of occupancy for this space.
