45,000 S.F. – MedTech Contract Research facility

Over the past six years, Doug Feickert has worked with American Preclinical Services (now NAMSA) on more than a dozen projects as they continuously upgrade and expand their four-building campus.

NAMSA provides clinical research services, laboratory studies, medical device testing, and biological safety consulting services to clients around the world.

Framework Architects is currently assisting NAMSA on the development of this major expansion and remodeling of their original operations center in MN. Construction is scheduled to start in early 2022 and will be completed in spring of 2023. The project includes 35,000 square feet of new space and remodeling of another 10,000 square feet.

When finished, the facility will include over 86,000 square feet of research & testing spaces, surgical procedure rooms, clinical observation suites, administrative offices, and employee amenity spaces. The building will include a new lobby and guest orientation center; where they welcome clients from around the globe.

The new building is designed to provide a completely updated look for the 80’s era concrete block industrial structure. New spaces will wrap-around the old building, allowing internal functions & departments to grow – while maintaining functional relationships and circulation patterns. The re-developed site will add 80 parking spaces, a new receiving dock, and a covered employee patio.
