Hopkinton, MA – JM Coull worked with Gorman Richardson Lewis Architects, Meridian Associates, RRC Engineering and Building Engineering Resources to build Perkin Elmer, a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, a ground-breaking personalized health innovation center of excellence. The focus of the center is to help scientists eradicate disease and extend the quality of life for individuals around the world.
The project was completed in four strategic phases that involved multiple buildings around an occupied campus. Most comprehensive was the first phase, which built clean and non-clean space for the production of microfluidic cells in ISO 5 and ISO 6 cleanrooms.
The second phase renovated lab and office space to accommodate new office space and three new laboratories which were relocated to Hopkinton from Montreal and Boston. The second floor remained active during construction of the first floor offices and chemical, biochemical and vivarium laboratories. In addition to this, the electrical service was upgraded along with new mechanical and process systems.
The last two phases created a new 40,000sf executive and corporate office, conference and training rooms, fitness and locker room, and a dining hall, and then added 15,000sf to the existing warehouse, while converting the existing warehouse into manufacturing and office space.
