As pioneers in the field of early cancer detection and prevention, Exact Sciences is rapidly evolving not only in innovation and research, but also in the needs of their physical facilities. During the summer of 2017, the company chose the 50-acre site formerly occupied by Spectrum Brands on Madison’s Beltline Highway as the home for their new laboratory campus.
The site contained a number of existing constraints that required careful attention to design and detail, including a 50-foot change in elevation across the site. Located in an Urban Design District, the project team worked closely with the City of Madison and the surrounding neighborhood throughout the planning process to ensure all elements of site and building design, considered adjacent land uses.
Being constructed over three phases, this $180M+ private redevelopment will ultimately include a LEED-Certified Clinical Lab Facility (170,000sf), a LEED-Certfied Production Lab Facility (75,000sf), an Amenities Building (108,000sf) and a Parking Structure (950 stalls).
