Alachua, Fla. – Avison Young facilitated a 42,500-square-foot lease agreement between Concept Companies and Ology Bioservices for a new built-to-suit lab space on the heels of a federal government contract for the company to expand production capabilities, including vaccines and therapeutics for COVID-19 once finalized. Concept Companies will develop the facility, conveniently situated adjacent to Ology Bioservices’ headquarters at 13200 NW Nano Court in Alachua, just northwest of Gainesville, Florida.
“The collaboration on this project between the Concept Companies team, Ology Bioservices, our consultants, and the municipality is a great example of how success can be achieved for our clients when there is an urgent timeline,” said Brian Crawford, Concept Companies CEO. “The facility was entitled and will be under construction within four months of a notice to proceed.”
Concept Companies recently broke ground on Ology Bioservices’ new space and anticipates completion in Summer 2021. Crawford played an integral role in expediting the design and permitting for the facility.
“We look forward to our continued investment in and expansion of the research district in the City of Alachua and Greater Gainesville Community,” continued Crawford.
