Lab Space/BioScience

Northern Virginia Bioscience Center

Loveless Porter is proud to have been the architect of the Northern Virginia Bioscience Center, a 30,000 square foot wet lab in Innovation Park. Close to a brewery, event venues, restaurants, and scenic walking trails, this corporate research park is anchored by the George Mason University SciTech Campus. Other tenants include ATCC, Corning Mediatech, and the Prince William Science Accelerator. We designed the facility to handle research into cancer-causing agents, Lyme disease, pharmaceutical delivery, and other non-bio-hazard studies. This usage comes with rigorous requirements around mechanical, electrical, and plumbing needs, along with Biosafety Level II standards. We also added some flourishes with exterior materials, giving this high-tech building a signature design that speaks to the exciting work taking place inside. Bonus points if you can read the biomedical code that we integrated into the window design using dashes and squares. Multiple spec plans are available to accommodate tenants of all sizes, with labs starting at 980 square feet.
