Pacific Program Management Broadens Life Sciences Reach

Pacific Program Management (PPM) recently launched a dedicated life sciences practice. With headquarters in Seattle and operations across North America, the firm’s investment in this specific market sector recognizes its explosive growth and workplace requirement expansion.

“The needs of life sciences commercial real estate are unique,” says Clark Lindsay, PPM’s CEO. “From strategy development to space planning, design, construction, build, move and activation, workspaces that incorporate laboratories, office and other special uses must meet exacting programmatic, regulatory and safety requirements. Having advocates who both understand the critical importance of the right space and have relevant practical experience in bringing a vision to life is vital to meeting those needs.”

With clients that include Allakos, Tricida, Sana Biotechnology, HemaCare (a Charles River Company) and Vir Biotechnology, PPM’s new practice is a natural progression of a niche expertise developed by the company in recent years. It also reflects a desire to dedicate further resources to serving the increased demand for sophisticated capital project management, workspace consulting, and transition and relocation services in the future.

PPM’s life sciences practice follows growth in the past two years into key markets in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The practice will be led by Annette Walter.
