BEDFORD, MA- Erland recently began construction for Ocular Therapeutix, an ophthalmic medical device and pharmaceutical company. This project is a major renovation of an existing 3-story, 70,000 square foot building located at 15 Crosby Drive in the Crosby Corporate Center in Bedford, MA where Erland previously completed an office/laboratory build-out for Covidien.
Partnering with architect TRIA Inc., Erland is executing the work while two existing clean rooms and a lab on the third floor are being occupied by Ocular. In order to manage the logistics of this scenario, the construction team was required to build temporary partitions, develop a life safety plan with safe means of egress, carefully maintain existing utility systems and secure a certificate of occupancy for this space.
When complete, the building will house new open and private offices, conference rooms, lunch/meeting room, main lobby staircase, six cleanrooms, and lab support spaces. Erland is also installing a new 250 KW optional standby gas-fired generator system.
