The Mission:

Design, build, and finance a state-of-the art life sciences laboratory building on George Mason University’s Science and Technology Campus in Manassas. The project was delivered under Virginia’s Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act (PPEA).

The Solution:

Our turnkey solution encompassed a three-story, 76,000 SF life sciences lab building comprised of 58,000 SF of GMU laboratory/office space, including the Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine “CAPMM.” The innovative facility also houses other programs including University Research Labs, and shared support facilities and an additional 18,000 SF of third-party incubator space. 

Primary team members for the project included Gilbane Development Company (developer), Gilbane Building Company (builder), Cannon Design (architect/engineer), Timmons Group (civil engineer), and M&T Securities (financing), Potomac Development Group (retail leasing/ advisory), and Transwestern (incubator leasing/advisory).

The Details:

Proteomics, the study of proteins, is considered to be at the cutting edge in the study of biological systems and applied molecular medicine.
