Arlington, MA – The Massachusetts Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors presented BW Kennedy & Co. with an Eagle Award for its work on a new 91,000sf core and shell building and 42,000sf garage at 115 Hartwell Ave., Lexington.
BW Kennedy took home the Eagle Award for the firm’s
work providing D/B MEPFP services to King Street Properties for construction of a new life sciences building, including a good manufacturing practice (GMP) facility and garage as part of The Hartwell Innovation Campus. This was the first ever speculative ground-up laboratory research building developed in the suburban market.
The three-story facility is designed to be GMP certified and to have oligonucleotide synthesis capacity ranging from high throughput to large-scale production. The new lab space is designed to meet the synthesis demands of Wave’s growing portfolio while also increasing control and visibility of its product supply chain. Wave’s Lexington facility is designed for a capacity of approximately 200 employees over the long term.
At the awards banquet, the BW Kennedy & Co. project team gathered with over 200 ABC members to celebrate the outstanding projects completed by the member companies. In addition to receiving the Eagle Award, BW Kennedy & Co. also received the People’s Choice Award, as voted by peers
and colleagues at the event.
Since completing the Core and Shell building, BW Kennedy & Co. has fit out a combination GMPmanufacturing, lab and office space for tenant Wave Life Sciences (NASDAQ: WVE).
The Eagle Award recognizes the overall excellence in project execution, craftsmanship, safety, innovative elements and challenges, and client satisfaction
