DENVER, May 10, 2023 (Newswire.com) - HATCHlabs @ Irvine Spectrum, a joint development project between HATCHspacesⓇ, NexCore Science and Technology, BAM Creative, and HITT Contractors, was selected as a finalist for the 2023 NAIOP SoCal Awards under the "Interior Project of the Year" category. This annual award recognizes leaders in Southern California's Commercial Real Estate Development industry and celebrates the previous year's most innovative and transformative commercial real estate projects.
Completed in September 2022, HATCHlabs @ Irvine Spectrum was the first post-incubation life science facility in Orange County. The purpose-built facility resulted from a collaborative partnership between NexCore Science and Technology and HATCHspaces, who partnered with BAM Creative and general contractor HITT to overhaul over 39,000 square feet of space. The result of the project was a state-of-the-art, collaborative, purpose-built space developed to accommodate the specialized technical needs of early-phase life science companies.
"It took immense strategic collaboration and a strong, innovative vision to bring a project like this to life," said Allan Glass, Founder of HATCHspaces. "It's historically been quite difficult for emerging life science companies to find high-quality laboratory spaces that enable them to blend creativity with technical functionality. By combining collaborative spaces and state-of-the-art facilities, the HATCHlabs concept gives these companies exactly what they need to advance their innovations."
The two-story project created eight turnkey lab suites available for immediate use and expansive state-of-the-art lab-enabled shell space on the first floor. The developers and contractors installed several highly-specialized infrastructure upgrades, including heavy power upgrades; multi-tenant distributed power, water, and sewer access; high-capacity air handling systems; shared lab amenities; back-up power; and fully-fit lab casework. The development also included outdoor community spaces, conference rooms, shower rooms, mother's rooms, and shared breakrooms.
"We are thrilled that HATCHlabs has been recognized as a finalist for the NAIOP Southern California Chapter's 2023 Awards," shared Allan. "Working with NexCore, BAM Creative, and HITT was a phenomenal experience, and we could not have delivered such a dynamic facility without them. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone who worked together to bring HATCHlabs @ Irvine Spectrum to life."
The winner of this highly-competitive award will be announced at The NAIOP Southern California Chapter's 2023 Awards ceremony, which will take place on May 11, 2023, at Vibiana — Downtown Los Angeles.
