Columbia's work at the Siemens Healthineers’ Advanced Manufacturing and Research & Development (R&D) Facility is ranked among the largest construction projects in Massachusetts by The Boston Business Journal.
The new building is part of Columbia’s expansive portfolio of work at the facility, which represents one of the more complex and challenging life science expansion and renovation projects ever undertaken. This multi-year, $300 million program substantially expanded the research and production footprint of the Siemens Healthineers’ Laboratory Diagnostics campus in East Walpole, MA. The campus is now comprised of six buildings providing dedicated manufacturing, warehousing, office, and research space. Siemens Healthineers’ Walpole campus contributes to production of more than 10 billion diagnostic tests annually and operates on a 24 hour per day, seven days per week schedule. Most recently, the facility has begun production of more than 25 million SARS-CoV-2 antibody test kits per month to aid COVID-19 efforts.
