PROTECS Innovation Centers™: Giving Innovation its Space to Grow

PROTECS Innovation Centers™ are specialized with the infrastructure to effectively and efficiently support the research and development operations of innovative companies in life sciences and high-tech.

Designed to help innovators achieve their own secured high-end laboratory and office space in a cost-effective model that includes shared common amenities, PROTECS Innovation Centers™ are the ultimate reflection of our competencies in serving the life sciences and high-tech sectors—and our commitment to giving innovation its space to grow.


An Innovative Offering for a New Age of R&D

With the number of expansive large pharmaceutical campuses dwindling, scientists are spinning out their own smaller, focused research and development operations in biotech, pharma, medical devices and other high-tech innovations. These emerging companies need a space that can support their complex regulatory and resource demands, but at a price point that won’t break the bank.

PROTECS saw the need for a new real estate option to support the unique requirements of this rapidly growing sector of organizations, and developed its own PROTECS Innovation Centers™ in response.

PROTECS Innovation Centers

Where Rising Stars Can Create and Collaborate

PROTECS Innovation Centers™ are set up to support innovative companies that desire to have their own identity, laboratory and/or office space. Whether they need 200 or 200,000 sq. ft., we leverage our specialized life sciences design-build expertise to customize tenant spaces at the lowest possible cost.

In addition to this private space, PROTECS Innovation Centers™ generally include access to common amenities like conference rooms, break rooms, bathrooms, lobbies and loading dock space. This model promotes collaboration and innovation between the resident companies, and empowers start-ups and emerging growth innovators to efficiently conduct their R&D operations in a way that makes maximum use of precious capital dollars.
