BLUE BIOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LABS
Beijing Science Park Development Co., Ltd.
Completion - 2012
44,000 Square Meters
Wet and Dry Biotechnology Research Lab
T+D designed the six research lab buildings at Blue Biotechnology Park to provide flexible space for start-up companies and individual entrepreneurs. This “incubator” campus is programmed to allow for individual labs as small as 28 square meters all the way up to full floor facilities of 2,000 square meters. Small start-ups can grow, mature and expand their operations without having to leave the Blue Biotechnology campus yet still enjoy the prestige and quality environment of a much larger concern.
While the building forms are fluid and curvilinear in shape, the floor plans have been laid out on a flexible planning grid of 4 meters by 7 meters; floor to floor heights are 4.8 meters and labs are located at the perimeter edges, as are the offices, to capture natural daylight where requested; core, storage and lab support spaces are located at the center of the building.
