Case Study

Charles River Labs: A strong foundation builds a solid partnership

Charles River Laboratories (CRL) engaged the construction expertise of Jones Lang LaSalle for the build-out of a ground-up, three-story, 56,000 square foot Headquarters, located in Wilmington, Massachusetts. By being involved early on in the planning of this project, Jones Lang LaSalle Construction provided CRL with critical preliminarily budget information and a detailed-project schedule, enabling them to make informed and confident project decisions during preconstruction and which ultimately added value to the end result.

Additionally, job site safety is of critical importance to Charles River Lab’s and to ensure that all work was completed without incident, our safety officer partnered with the CRL Safety Team in the development of customized site safety plan for this assignment. Specific attention was dedicated to formulating detailed provisions for safely facilitating this build-out while the remainder of this multi-building office campus remained fully operational.

The final project scope extended to the base building construction of the 56,000 square foot corporate headquarters, as well as, to the interior build-out of corporate offices, an executive board room, multiple conference rooms and open walled work space. Jones Lang LaSalle construction has also built a 68,000 square-foot Transgenic Services Facility, as well as, additional laboratory and interior-construction projects for Charles River Laboratories within this Wilmington campus.
