BioFire 650 Komas QC Lab + Workplace Tenant Improvement

Concurrent with the design and construction of BioFire’s new corporate campus, the FFKR design team developed this short-term lab and office TI project to meet the client’s urgent need for additional space. The project goals were clear: fast delivery, cost-efficient design, and maximized space utilization.

650 Komas was designed strategically for phased construction and occupancy due to varying tenant leasing schedules. Working with the landlord (Woodbury Corporation), FFKR and BioFire developed creative solutions to fast-track the first occupiable space and positioned the remaining areas to be construction-ready in order to minimize construction schedule and cost.

The pressing need to maximize the number of personnel and house them quickly in the space drove the design. Our team developed neighborhood workspaces to cluster employees strategically and promote collaboration. The design team worked closely with the client to find the appropriate balance between space efficiency and creating an equitable environment equipped with healthy working spaces that enjoy access to natural light and phenomenal cross-valley views.
