Invitae — East Coast Laboratory and Production Facility
Morrisville, North Carolina
(Submitted by Design-Build Partner 35 North)
Invitae’s East Coast Laboratory and Production Facility is a 125,000-square-foot major renovation and tenant improvement project. The goal was to create a state-of-the-art commercial laboratory and open office facility providing highly collaborative interior work areas and restful organic exterior environments for Invitae’s future East Coast operations. Invitae selected a premier location — a highly visible existing facility near the Raleigh-Durham International Airport that was once the popular Morrisville Outlet Mall — with the vision of transforming the former space into an advanced, high-performing, and sustainable laboratory and office facility. The entire facility is 250,000 square feet, which Invitae plans to eventually upfit and occupy. For an inside look of the project, click here.
