R E Dinneen was retained to design new facilities for Codiak's move to 18,920 sf at 500 Technology Sq. in the heart of Kendall Square in Cambridge. Previously constructed for multiple tenants, the labs have been re-purposed for Codiak's science and research and include BSL-1 and general lab use. Open office space is designed with interior private or semi-private office spaces, huddle rooms, lunch and meeting areas, and workstations using low, bench style desking as a standard. The facility also contains an animal care facility with vented animal cages, operatory and support spaces.
