Galenea •  Cambridge, MA
Laboratory, Office & Animal Facility Fitup
25,000 sf
Architect: Olson Lewis Dioli & Doktor Architects | Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA

Providing both preconstruction and construction management services, PIDC played an integral role in driving the fast-track, three-phase buildout of Galenea’s facility in Cambridge Discovery Park.

The 25,000 sf facility provides researchers with first-class biology and tissue culture labs, chemistry labs and a state-of-the-art animal care facility, in addition to high-end corporate offices and support spaces.

Project highlights include:

  • The installation of multiple functional areas including the bio/culture labs, a hot lab and vivarium.
  • Installation of new systems/equipment including reverse osmosis (RO) water purification, waste neutralization, lab vacuum, steam generators, cage wash and autoclaves.
  • An eight-story installation of two rooftop exhaust fan units/ductwork.
  • A new chemistry lab with 15 fume hoods

Galenea is a leader in the rapidly emerging field of synaptic transmission drug discovery. Synaptic transmission is the process by which neurons communicate with each other. Since dysfunctions in this process are now known to play a central role in many psychiatric and neurological diseases, modulators of synaptic transmission have the potential to yield breakthrough treatments with dramatic impact.
