The design-build project at FibroGen, located in the Mission Bay area of San Francisco, was a 239,000 square foot, six-floor, tenant improvement build-out of a biotech lab and corporate headquarters. The project was approximately 65% lab/35% office space including executive offices, server room, cafeteria, training room and exercise facility. Lab space included a chemistry lab, process development lab, vivarium, explosion-proof chemical storage, and other miscellaneous lab/support spaces. Our contract included preconstruction services (design coordination and 3D BIM modeling).
I find it amazing that REI’s footprint on our project is only large enough for the activities at hand. All of the conduit, racks, and junction boxes were prefabricated at the shop to be brought out and installed and it is being done on schedule and injury free. Great job by the REI team!
