Shire Laboratory Relocation

STV provided comprehensive project oversight services, including the coordination of more than 60 vendors, to facilitate the move from Shire’s former location in Cambridge, MA to their new one in Lexington, MA. The relocation into the new facility, which consists of more than 65,000 squarefeet of laboratory space, required an intense preliminary inventory. In total, nearly 3,000 items were inventoried over a period of four months prior to the move, which occurred across 16 phases within a period of five months. Over 3,200 mover-hours were used for the relocation of staff, office & lab equipment, cold chemicals and samples.
