Biotechnology Growth Environment & Greenhouse

Syngenta

Durham, NC

Syngenta Biotechnology's Growth Environment 1 is a 130,000 sq. ft. testing facility for soil and plants. The building includes a 41,000 sq. ft. insulated glass greenhouse constructed above a 64,000 sq. ft. cast-in-place basement.  

Performing turnkey concrete construction services, Donley’s Concrete Group excavated the heavy foundations and placed the pile caps, columns, shear walls, and 2 ft. thick cast-in-place pan deck. All placements of the elevated decks were made by hand-screeding and non-mechanical methods in order to accommodate the required tolerance of Ff 50.
