When this biopharmaceutical company began to grow in headcount and research space requirements, they turned to DPR to help expand their facilities. Work areas were scarce, and the space lacked the necessary type of laboratories needed to grow. Still in startup mode, the client wanted a contractor with expertise in life science construction who could provide them with the best in quality renovations, even with their limited budget. They also needed a contractor who could guide them in making careful decisions throughout the three-month, 15,200-square-foot tenant improvement, office expansion and lab area upgrade project.
After more than a decade-long presence in the Seattle market, DPR closed its local office in 2003 to concentrate on growth in other markets around the country. But 15 years later, they re-opened its doors; and in May 2018, DPR completed its first life science project in the Seattle region.
