Huntsville, Alabama, is booming, and that’s in part due to the growth of its biotechnology market. HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology is a major player in that sector, and Brasfield & Gorrie has been hard at work on two specialized facilities for the nonprofit: the HudsonAlpha Greenhouse and Education Learning Labs and the global headquarters of Discovery Life Sciences.

ENR Southeast recently spoke to our team about how we’ve addressed the unique conditions required for these life science construction projects. Because of their specialized uses, both buildings have specific construction requirements. Our project managers also spoke about the use of precast walls to stay on schedule.
