German science and technology company Merck Group has unveiled plans to construct a new $115M campus in Burlington, Massachusetts.

The 26,000sq m facility will feature a customer collaboration laboratory and training centre, as well as office space. It will serve as a major hub for the company’s North American life science business.

The firm’s 850 full-time Billerica-based life science employees will be relocated to the new campus, once completed.

Merck Life Science executive board member and CEO Udit Batra said: “This new and more expansive Merck campus gives us a unique, multi-use life science hub in the United States — one that provides our employees and customers with a sustainable and collaborative working environment.

“We have a long history in Massachusetts, and as a global leader in life science, we are committed to strengthening our presence in one of the most important science and technology hubs in the world.”

The building is aiming to achieve LEED certification and will be complete in the second half of 2017.
