AIASD Member News: Delawie Groundbreaking Begins On $100M Biotech Project

Key team members from BioLegend, Delawie, Hughes Marino, and DPR Construction gathered on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, on the BioLegend Campus in Sorrento Mesa to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new $100 million campus development.

BioLegend envisioned a campus-like environment that would foster a sense of collaboration and dedication to the biotech company’s mission to enable Legendary Discovery. They also wanted to build a sense of community, with uniquely positioned indoor and outdoor amenities worthy of attracting and retaining the best talent.

The 8-acre campus design includes a complete overhaul of three out of four older buildings along Terman Court. One demolished building will be replaced by the main campus building with an iconic 70-foot tall atrium as its focal point. From the atrium, BioLegend employees will access the upper floor labs, offices, break rooms and conference rooms. Delawie applied its understanding of the client’s process and workflow to form a building program that ultimately marries functional, flexible, and efficient lab space with inter-departmental collaboration. The placement of departments is deliberate and allows for productive workspaces – both creative office and private rooms for focused work. Read more at Delawie
