BL Companies provided design services to renovate an existing two-story building on the waterfront in Stamford, CT, providing over 63,200 SF of space to facilitate Sema4’s continued growth. The building was constructed in the early 1900s as a factory and has evolved through numerous adaptive reuses. The program was adapted to the complex roof system of concrete framed monitor skylights to benefit from daylighting. Internally, it was important to isolate the clean labs from other spaces and to resolve the challenge of coordinating complex lab MEP, ventilation requirements in areas with limited headroom. The facility includes office, research and lab spaces; conference rooms; locker rooms, lunchroom, receiving and storage areas.
