Developing a State-of-the-Art Headquarters & Lab Building in San Francisco

As one of the world’s leading biopharmaceutical Fortune 500 companies, Merck is responsible for such medical breakthroughs such as the first mumps, rubella, Hepatitis B, and chickenpox vaccines.

They wanted to expand its research and development operations in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area’s biopharmaceutical hub. Thus, Merck Research Laboratories’ West Coast headquarters came to fruition. This is a state-of-the-art facility with a mission to improve people’s quality of life.

We supported the team’s vision and design of the full shell and core, and tenant improvement project, which includes a new nine-story, 300,000-square-foot building with a 300-seat auditorium, conference facility, and health and fitness center for professional development and wellbeing. It also includes cutting-edge labs and offices.
