Abcam is the leading supplier of protein research tools to life scientists who are executing critical and life-saving work. Their space needed an overhaul so that their Cell Line Service Team could increase lab capabilities, create more space for production, and provide room for future growth.

GCI executed improvements of their 16,000 square-foot space in Fremont, California which involved the creation of multiple lab spaces built to BSL-1 and BSL-2 requirements. The project scope included flooring, partitioning, ceilings, doors and openings, and fixed laboratory casework & millwork. The team also conducted an overhaul of the buildings MEP systems, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and lighting.

Carefully navigating sensitive elements like CO2 distribution and a RODI system, GCI was able to build a space that meets Abcam’s unique needs and delivers on their vision to support breakthrough scientific research.
