DPR completed this 110,350-sq.-ft. pharmaceutical research facility, encompassing a mixture of chemistry and biology labs, associated support facilities and offices. This is a replacement for an existing research facility located in a nearby single-story office park.  The new site is a previously underdeveloped property in the Rancho Vistoso neighborhood of Oro Valley, Arizona, with spectacular mountain views.  The project achieved a LEED®-NC Gold certification by utilizing sustainable design elements and construction techniques, as well as having an emphasis on recycled construction materials. There are two levels above ground, along with a below-grade basement containing mechanical and support elements.
