Biotech Eight is Virginia Biotechnology Research Park’s third multi-tenant facility. To accommodate the growth of current and future tenants, they initiated the construction of a new 3-story, 79,000 sf core and shell building. The first and second floors feature wet lab space, while the third floor is dedicated to offices and training rooms. The building is a reinforced concrete frame with masonry/cast stone exterior and the concrete walls were installed with ICF panels to increase the R-factor within the building.
Additional amenities include central mail and express package facilities, X-ray processing, Autoclave cold room, and conference rooms. Tenants include HLA, Clear Point, OCME, Department of Forensic Science, and Cellular Therapeutics. Also included is a precast 3-level parking deck with an elevated walkway and parking accommodations for 299 vehicles.
