DCBA provided Program Management services associated with a 127,000 sq. ft. expansion at Genzyme’s landmark biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility along the Charles River. ARC/Architectural Resources Cambridge Inc.’s original, modern design for the expansion was created to reflect Genzyme’s production of ground-breaking research and cutting-edge pharmaceutical products. The new construction included the addition of a three megawatt dual-fuel cogeneration facility for the purpose of generating steam and electricity for the existing pharmaceutical facility. The expansion also created additional engineering facilities and manufacturing space. Genzyme sought LEED Silver Certification for the expansion under the U.S. Green Building Council.
