Project Description

Nelson Laboratories is a leading provider of state-of-the-art microbiological testing services. This modern company needed new facilities to conduct its important work, and Big-D Construction answered the call.

The Nelson Labs building consists of a 50,502-square-foot laboratory and office building with a sky bridge connecting the new building to the existing building. The new building houses space for administrative staff, along with the biocompatibility, microbiology, and pharmaceutical laboratory departments. The first floor contains training and conference rooms, offices, a kitchen and cafe, a gym, a daycare, and mechanical space. The second floor is filled with laboratories and the third floor houses executive offices, boardrooms, a kitchen, and a computer room.

Nelson Laboratories has served the medical device and pharmaceutical industries since 1985. The company employs more than 320 people. Among them are more than 130 degreed scientists and over 50 registered and specialist microbiologists (National Registry of Microbiologists). Nelson Labs provides more than 400 high-quality microbiological and analytical tests to manufacturers in the medical device, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical industries. Big-D was proud to step up and provide top-notch space for these scientists and staff.
