Consigli Construction Co., Inc. has completed construction of the Bigelow Center for Blue Biotechnology (BCBB), the first building at the new Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences campus in East Boothbay.

The new $10.3 million BCBB is one of three complementary and interconnected research centers that Consigli, along with WBRC Architects Engineers, in association with Perkins + Will, planning and design architect, are completing at the 64-acre Ocean Science and Education Campus.

The 25,600-sf three-story building, which houses the world’s first microbial single cell genomics center and the largest collection in the world of marine phytoplankton, contains various laboratories, offices, a café and conference space. Research in the BCBB focuses on harnessing the potential of the ocean’s microbial life to benefit society through new technologies and product development. Projected to receive LEED Gold designation, the BCBB’s energy-efficient design includes interior and exterior building materials chosen for their low carbon footprint, high use of recycled content, sustainable manufacturing process and lifecycle durability.
