Promega’s Green Bio-Manufacturing Building Creates Jobs

Promega Corp. added a new $120 million, green bio-manufacturing facility to its campus in Fitchburg, WI in October.  The 262,000 square-foot Feynman Center features a multi-story atrium for its staff and clients called the Crossroads with solar hot water for the cafeteria and locker rooms, 63 geothermal wells for heating and cooling, and a “living wall” with 7,000 native and tropical plants of 42 different varieties.  The living wall will bloom year-round through its own irrigation system.  The Crossroads has views of native prairie.  The construction project created 100 high-paying jobs.
