BSA Lifestructures

Medical Research and Development Facility

To grow Cook Medical’s presence in Indianapolis, be a leader in the biologics revolution that is transforming medicine, and attract world-leading scientists to the local ecosystem, a change needed to be made to the facility built in 2012. The Cook Regentec project is an interior renovation of an existing warehouse which is home to the General BioTechnology and Regentec divisions. BSA studied the site and determined to create the space by expanding the existing building not by constructing a new, adjacent building.

After BSA performed the master plan, Phase 1 consisted of a new two-story mezzanine area and renovation of existing first-floor space for office use. During Phase 1, portions of the existing exterior walls on the northeast and southeast facades were removed and replaced with an aluminum and glass curtain wall. Phase 2 of this project involved more extensive renovations of the exterior building envelope as well as site and landscape modifications.

Located on the campus of 16 Tech -Indianapolis’ innovation community (60 acres of creative space –makerspace, co-working space and research and wet labs, generous green space and event space).
