Research Center Warm Shell & Tenant Improvements

creating a sustainable facility for life saving research

next project


To meet the needs of creating transformative medicines for people with life-threatening diseases, a new 170,000 SF three-story facility, in the heart of San Diego’s Torrey Pines science cluster, was developed with state-of-the-art laboratory, office building and tenant improvements and above underground parking. Over 70% of the facility is dedicated to research and can accommodate 250 employees.

Creating a sustainable research environment at the forefront of the Vertex at The Spectrum Collection project, our sustainability experts and the Vertex team coordinated directly to complete a fully sustainable design for the project. To directly support safety measures, our team provided automated process design services for a central system to distribute solvents to and collect solvent waste from throughout the building.

EXP provided LEED Administration and Energy Modeling services for Vertex, a LEED CI v2009 Gold Certified building.
