Enzyme Manufacturing Facility
Aiding next-gen genomics
As a leading developer and manufacturer of life science tools and integrated systems for large-scale analysis of genetic variation and function, Illumina needed a new home for their Enzyme Reagent Development and Manufacturing Group. With no available room for expansion at the current location, their forecasts predicted the need for a new building and site within two years.
Flad was selected to design the interior fit-out of the new building shell. The multi-wing, two-story facility includes a 117,000-square-foot main building housing manufacturing space, labs, and offices and 16,000 square feet of warehouse space.
The building is organized around a main circulation corridor with manufacturing/lab areas and a service corridor to the west and the office areas to the east. The hub at the intersection of the north and south wings of the building includes a lunchroom and conferencing center designed to promote collaboration and interaction among staff.
Specific goals for the project included flexible, reconfigurable process suites based on a modular planning grid; a pleasing and energetic work environment that fosters interaction and communication among staff; and connectivity between the lab and office environments. Flad performed laboratory programming and full architectural services for the interior shell fit-out of the new facility.
