Biotechnology Business Development Centre
Built in 1986 and renovated in 2010, the Biotechnology Business Development Centre (BBDC) is a multi-tenant accelerator centre. The BBDC is strategically located in the Edmonton Research Park, just 15 minutes from the Edmonton International Airport, the University of Alberta, and Edmonton’s downtown business core.
Since 2007 the facility has filled a crucial need in the Edmonton ecosystem, providing flexibly, leasable lab space to private companies. Currently there are 13 tenants operating in private commercialization, contract research and product scaleup. Demand for labs is high, as Edmonton has a limited supply of leasable, private lab space.
The BBDC is ideal for growing biotech companies who are ready to establish a strong corporate identity in the Edmonton marketplace. A highly flexible core structure is complemented by fully equipped, flexible labs (including fume hoods, autoclaves and glasswashers) and niche vivarium facilities.
This building features three floors of lease space totaling 72,000 square feet. The tenants enjoy access to common amenities such as meeting rooms, walk-in coolers, a bright and spacious atrium, loading dock, energized parking, and 24-hour secure building access. The building is situated on 6.0 acres, with space for additional research and innovation growth.
