$45 Million expansion at Donald Danforth Plant Science Center breaks ground.
The team of Landmark (Owner’s Rep), Christner/Flad (Architect), and McCarthy (Construction Managers) are excited to announce we have broken ground at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center’s new $45 Million addition. The 75,000 sf addition will include flexible research laboratories that will accommodate advances in robotics, bioinformatics and group approaches to research, and will also include state-of-the-art equipment and additional growth chamber space. “The Center’s building expansion project is a major step in our long range plans to increase our impact through plant science,” said Danforth Center President James C. Carrington. “The new addition will increase our capacity for high-level science in crop improvement, bioenergy, sustainable agriculture and plant biology. The new facilities will also help attract the best scientific teams as we expand in the years ahead.”
