Come join your green building colleagues May 26th for a tour of the EMD Serono Research & Development Institute in Billerica in the Unity and Sagamore buildings. The former achieved LEED Gold certification in 2011, while the latter attained LEED Platinum certification in 2015.
The Unity building is a state-of -the-art biology and chemistry research facility which houses 200 scientists and research labs. The Sagamore building is a former pilot scale Protein Production Laboratory which has been transformed into an open concept office space.
EMD Serono prides itself on environmental responsibility and cutting edge technology which are driving factors for the facility design. The presenters from EMD Serono include Tony Meenaghan, Senior Director Facilities EHS & Engineering, Jeff Hyman, Senior Manager, Environmental Health & Safety US, and Jack Conway, Project Manager Facilities.
