The Scripps Research Institute, Scripps Florida

Jupiter, FL

This state-of-the-art, biomedical research facility and corporate campus sits adjacent to Florida Atlantic University on 30 acres of undeveloped land just east of Interstate 95 in Jupiter, Fla. The three-building, 364,000-square-foot research center with a central energy plant is used for basic biomedical science, drug discovery and technology development with one of the buildings including administrative offices and additional learning facilities.

The features in the advanced technology/administrative building include Class A office space; cafeteria; 250-seat auditorium; library; and distant learning center. The project completed six weeks ahead of schedule with the first building being occupied in November 2008.

“The team's relationship with the owner was outstanding and withstood the time of a lengthy project with a high level of public attention. The team was especially successful with inclusion of Small Business Enterprises in the project. A project goal was exceeded, especially due to the leadership and innovation of the team's management.”
