SAN DIEGO, June 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BNBuilders (www.bnbuilders.com) and Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc.
Boston-based Vertex is a biotech company focused on creating transformative medicines for people who have serious diseases and high unmet medical needs. Its San Diego research team was responsible for the discovery of two cystic fibrosis medications, Kalydeco and Orkambi, which were groundbreaking treatments for patients with certain types of the disease.
Vertex's new building in Torrey Pines will be at the heart of San Diego's biotech community. With the expansion, Vertex's research center will double in size from 80,000 to 170,000 square feet, and house 250 employees, up from its current capacity of about 180 people. The company's expansion is an indication of its continued dedication to researching and developing new medicines.
Ross Brown, DBIA, LEED AP, Project Executive at BNBuilders, states, "BNBuilders is honored to be a part of Vertex's breakthrough research for cystic fibrosis and other diseases. We are very pleased that this beautiful new campus will allow their important work to continue to grow, unconstrained by their facility."
