Even before current construction is finished, Exact Sciences is planning for another stage of expansion at one of its Madison campuses, which could about double its lab space.
Exact Sciences would build up to 235,200 square feet at a lab at its Discovery Campus site, near Schroeder Road and the Beltline, to expand its capacity to process Cologuard tests, which check for blood and DNA biomarkers in stool for signs of colorectal cancer.
The Discovery Campus lab and warehouse at 650 Forward Lane opened to workers in June, but renovations and construction continue at an employee amenities building and the office and call center at 1 Exact Lane.
“When we purchased the Discovery Campus site, a major appeal of the property was its ability to give us room to grow and expand over time,” spokesman Scott Larrivee said. “The continued growth of our company makes this the right time to consider adding laboratory, warehouse and office space as we plan for the next two to five years.”
