Norwood renovated a vacant 62,000 square foot warehouse into a state-of-the-art early-stage life science incubation facility created on behalf of the Hepatitis B Foundation. The first of its kind in Bucks County, the facility was designed to accommodate nonprofit research organizations and biotech companies under one roof. Norwood assisted the design team for more than a year, providing extensive preconstruction services and design input. The facility houses BL2 labs for molecular biology, a BL3 lab for live cell research, dark room, tissue culture room, radioactive experiments room, ultracentrifuge, refrigerated centrifuge, scintillation counters, -80-degree freezer space, tissue culture hood, incubator, and mass spectrophotometer.
Most recently, our team completed construction on a 40,000 square foot expansion, including 15 BL2 laboratories, a conference center, office space, cafeteria, and parking.
