Promega Corporation opened the 283,000-sf Kornberg Center in April of 2021 in Fitchburg, Wis. Designed by Ramlow/Stein and SmithGroup, the three-story facility provides advanced laboratories for core product and technology development in cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetic identity, clinical diagnostics, and scientific applications. Integrating office, meeting, and research environments to foster collaboration and accelerate innovation, the highly flexible building offers core instrumention suites, cell culture facilities, and dedicated bench space for visiting collaborators and interns. An inspiring four-story atrium is bridged by two floating walkways that connect the four quadrants of the building. Amenities include a multipurpose auditorium, an exhibition space, kitchen and dining venues, fitness courts, a sound therapy room, and an accessible green roof. Utilizing 65 percent less energy than a conventional structure, the facility features a sophisticated double-skin façade, a radiant heating and cooling system with a geothermal exchange, and 672 photovoltaic panels. Exceptional indoor air quality is achieved by a ventilation system that provides 100 percent outside air with total energy recovery. Kraemer Brothers was the construction manager for the project, which was delivered in 24 months.
