The Alexandria Center for Life Science is a 552,000sf, two-building fl agship campus for research innovation and discovery. In addition to completing the LEED Gold core/shell of the two six-story buildings and sixstory, 517,600sf 1,510-stall parking structure, Truebeck also delivered multiple tenant improvement projects within the buildings for biopharma companies such as ChemoCentryx, Vaxcyte, Codexis, and Nautilus.
The office and lab workspace includes wet lab space, cold rooms, BSL2 labs, analytical labs, radioactive labs, an industrial nitrogen gas storage tank, and a prefab chemical storage enclosure. The complex MEPF infrastructure accommodates the life science tenants. The complex exterior facade includes electro-chromatic exterior glass to mitigate solar heat gain and increases energy performance of the building. The project involves complex sitework on an eight-acre site, including contaminated soil mitigation, ground water control, engineered shoring systems, and mass excavation.
