P. Agnes recently transformed an existing space on the 2nd floor of Netrality’s 401 North Broad Street into a state-of-the-art headquarters and research facility for Biomeme, marking the latest project P. Agnes has been responsible for within Philadelphia’s burgeoning life sciences community. The project featured an interior fit-out as well as renovations to accommodate Biomeme’s laboratory, testing, manufacturing, and office operations.

The 44,000 square foot facility located in a growing life sciences corridor was designed around collaborative, team-based spaces while also accommodating space for future growth. To encapsulate this vision, the new headquarters features a mainly open floor plan as well as a number of common areas, focus rooms, and huddle spaces. The design builds off of the industrial character of the existing building and features glass walls, partially exposed ceilings, and contemporary finishes as well as large factory windows that let in natural light and offer views of the city.

The project was supported by a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant. Utilizing a dedicated RACP Coordinator for the project, P. Agnes was able to capitalize on our past program experience to help maximize Biomeme’s success while ensuring a smooth and responsive reporting process for Biomeme, the design team, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The project achieved substantial completion in November 2021, and Biomeme moved into their new headquarters in January 2022. P. Agnes is currently completing additional design modifications that were added after move in, which are expected to complete in May.
