Alabama Governor Hosts HudsonAlpha’s Greenhouse Opening

August 24, 2022

HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology opened its new Greenhouse and Educational Learning Labs at a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and leaders from across the region.

The new 14,000 sq ft glass facility is equipped with two laboratories, seven grow rooms, and cutting edge technological features that make it a transformative research and teaching facility. The facility is the only one of its kind in the U.S. and will help HudsonAlpha researchers advance their mission of using genomics to help sustainably feed and fuel our planet and serve as a living teaching lab for Institute faculty and students.

Brasfield & Gorrie served as the general contractor for the project.

“As they conduct research, incubate life science entrepreneurs and encourage education, HudsonAlpha is making a difference here in Huntsville, in the State of Alabama, and beyond. It’s an honor to play a part in building strong communities through constructing these specialized facilities,” said Sara Beth Wilcox, Brasfield & Gorrie Operations manager.
