A Modern Environment for Cancer Research

At Celgene—a major player in the discovery, development, and commercialization of products for the treatment of cancer and other severe, immune, inflammatory conditions—their goal is to change the course of human health through bold pursuits in science, life-enhancing therapies and a promise to always put patients first.  To help them in their pursuit, Bergelectric alongside BNBuilders and CRB Consulting Engineers helped them to build a new 115,000-sf laboratory tenant improvement project in San Diego.

The new facility includes extensive research areas outfitted with 80 fume hoods, cold rooms, conference rooms, two-story lobby and data center. The design implements the Japanese philosophy of “borrowed landscape,” in which the external views are echoed inside.

With such a fast moving project, incorporating energy conservation was a concern. Celgene remained committed to providing an environmentally sound tenant space through the use of intelligent design and construction practices, achieving their goal of LEED Gold certification. A variety of strategies, including techniques for reducing water and energy usage, selection of construction materials using recycled content and clean construction practices were incorporated.
