Sartorius is constructing the $60 million Center of Excellence for BioAnalytics in Ann Arbor, Mich. Designed by Hobbs+Black Architects, the 130,000-sf building will include a process development lab to accelerate the creation of advanced medical therapies. Providing next-generation facilities for biopharmaceutical research, development, production, and testing, the project will enable the company to consolidate business operations currently dispersed throughout Washtenaw County and beyond. The sustainably designed structure is expected to achieve LEED certification and will feature a 200-kilowatt photovoltaic array. Located in the Ann Arbor Research Park, the 16-acre site will also benefit from a stormwater runoff pond to protect against flooding and erosion. J.S. Vig Construction Company is the general contractor for the center, which is slated for completion in late 2023.
