Hopewell, NJ – Meyer, an award-winning architecture and interior design firm based in Philadelphia, and Integrated Project Services (IPS) celebrated the topping off Tuesday of BeiGene’s new flagship U.S. manufacturing and clinical R&D center in Hopewell, N.J. This state-of-the-art facility at the Princeton West Innovation Campus will support BeiGene’s continued growth and expand its pipeline of life-saving cancer medicines around the world.
IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC., a global life sciences consulting, architecture and engineering firm, is leading the overall design of the campus, which includes approximately 400,000 square feet of total development at the 42-acre site. Meyer is providing ground-up architecture and interior design services for BeiGene’s 100,000 square foot office and lab building.
BeiGene plans to recruit hundreds of new employees from the area’s thriving life sciences community to support the company’s Hopewell operations and its ongoing commitment to advancing a global pipeline of cutting-edge oncology drugs.
In helping to bring the facility online, Meyer and IPS worked to combine critical office and clinical research functions for the building.
“Working with IPS, Meyer wanted to craft a space that honors BeiGene’s commitment to growth and innovation,” said Phil Burkett, Meyer Principal and Corporate Practice Leader. “We designed BeiGene’s stunning facility to reflect these principles, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with IPS and BeiGene as we work to bring these buildings online.”
Meyer’s interior design team includes Principal Christopher Scarafile, Project Manager Jon Weber and Senior Designer Giselle Hipkins. Project Manager Glenn Sarsale, MBA, AIA, NCARB, and Architectural Designers Deanna Rosini, Krista Soh and Sam Turner worked with Burkett to provide architecture services for the project.
“IPS, in partnership with Meyer, is proud to help BeiGene bring this state-of-the-art facility to realization,” said Gene Martini, IPS Executive Vice President. “Building on the legacy of the Hopewell community’s life sciences industry, BeiGene’s new manufacturing and research center will create jobs and contribute to countless life-saving scientific breakthroughs.”
