Commercial Manufacturing Facility
El Segundo, CA
The new 44, 500 sf state-of-the-art commercial cGMP manufacturing facility enables the development of novel cancer immunotherapy products to be used for clinical trials in the treatment of patients with blood cancer. Adjacent to Los Angeles International Airport, the facility is strategically located so that it can accommodate up to 5,000 patient therapies per year from across the country. Equipped with numerous resources, the space houses manufacturing, quality, facilities, IT, and research and development office space.
San Francisco, CA
Johnson & Johnson Innovation’s first stand-alone site, JLABS @ San Francisco, features high-tech, modern scientific research space. The 30,000 sf incubator space includes chemistry, concept, and biology labs; office spaces; conference rooms; and shared common areas for up to 50 emerging companies. Thoughtful planning led to a flexible, open-air scheme which allows for easy growth and encourages collaboration amongst the resident entrepreneurs. The facility was voted as one of the Bay Area’s “coolest offices,” for design components like the sleek design includes glass walls, contemporary furniture and finishes, and spectacular Bay views.
The finished space is a consolidation of departmental groups into three existing buildings, which totals over 202,000 sf. Each of the buildings are three stories in height, and within easy walking distance from one another. The interior design incorporates Siemens workplace standards and brand guidelines into a modern, refreshed workspace. One of the new spaces is the main dining/cafeteria space, located in Building 40, and includes a full kitchen and servery. In order to meet facility demands, the dining area seats approximately 130 at tables, and can accommodate larger all-hands meetings of up to 230 in a lecture format. While designing these new efficient spaces, a key challenge of the project was incorporating existing workstations along with new private offices, conference rooms, lobby and cafeteria. Additionally, EwingCole created an extensive program database that allows the team to quickly perform test fits and block/stack options to accelerate decision-making.

Project H Workplace Renovation
Research Triangle Park, NC
Lenovo, the world’s number one personal computer company and information and storage technology innovator, sought a fast-track corporate office renovation of approximately 96,000 sf across 3 separate buildings on their US Headquarters campus. Simultaneous renovations of Buildings 6, 7, and 8 comprise Project H. Of note is the 39,000 sf upfit of Building 6. Originally built to provide laboratory and testing for products, the upfit converted the entire facility into an open and energetic work place for the inside sales division comprised of 400 mostly young millennials. It was especially important to Lenovo that the space support individual workstyles and collaborative nature of this workforce. The project team focused on creating a sustainable, innovative workplace that responds to the needs and well-being of the staff, and incorporated Lenovo’s branding to “Never Stand Still”, incorporating a higher ratio of collaborative and social spaces to work areas, and a more fun and residential feel to the overall space, including an eclectic mix of furniture styles and materials.
