Stryker acquired the 48-acre site with the goal of centralizing research laboratories, manufacturing, warehouse, distribution, business and administration offices which had been housed in several buildings at different locations.

The main challenges included the reinforcement of the existing structure, additional mezzanines, installation of an all new facade consisting of a pre-fabricated masonry panel system, a high-voltage electrical service grid & new power plant and the incorporation of redundancy within the MEP infrastructure to accommodate capacity and future expansion.

Project completed in less than one year and a staggered occupancy was achieved with manufacturing coming on line in only six months.
