P. Agnes continues to expand its life sciences portfolio with the completion of two lab suite fit-outs within Netrality’s 401 N Broad facility in Philadelphia, PA. The historic facility occupies an entire city block and is home to leading life sciences, digital health, and tech-enabled companies, including Biomeme, whose headquarters and research space were completed by P. Agnes last year.

Located on the mezzanine level of 401 N Broad, lab suites 6 and 7 were fit-out to serve future life sciences companies. The work included new walls, doors, ceilings, roofing, finishes, lighting, general construction, mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, structural, and tele/data installations, including security systems, equipment, and wiring. Due to the historic nature of the facility, the exterior windows were installed in conjunction with the Philadelphia Historical Commission.

The project also featured the installation of specialized equipment within the lab spaces, including vacuum pumps and an acid-neutralization system. In order to support the lab spaces, our team completed an overhaul of the facility’s mechanical system.

The project was completed in May 2023. P. Agnes served as the Construction Manager, and the project team included Strada Architecture LLC and BALA Consulting Engineers, Inc.
