Gilead Sciences opened their new site in Oceanside by purchasing an existing clinical-scale manufacturing building. Ferguson Pape Baldwin Architects was tasked with creating a campus environment when Gilead acquired the adjacent building to house laboratories and office space.
The new site improvements created accessible pedestrian access and landscaping to tie the two buildings together and new glass storefront at the lobby entrance provided more natural light. The interior space was masterplanned to create a mezzanine for utilities and to preserve critical space for a future pilot plant, more labs and offices. Conference rooms, multi-purpose space, a cafeteria and fitness center were added to provide the amenities that had previously been lacking.
