After completing the West and East Wing renovation projects for Monsanto’s Building F in 2008, Monsanto once again selected S. M. Wilson & Co. to provide design/build services for the construction of a new 11,300 SF regulatory building.
Monsanto uses the facility to conduct their storage, sampling, grinding and sorting of various seeds and plants. The facility houses eight growth stations, which will be able to simulate any type of environment, as well as five grinding stations. The facility also houses three different coolers and freezers for sample storage, including a 4 °C walk-in, a -20 °C walk-in and an -80 °C freezer unit. The project was designed to be LEED certified.
