Project Highlights

Calyxt Inc., headquartered in Roseville, Minnesota, is a food and agriculture focused company that specializes in using gene editing to deliver healthier food ingredients.  Michaud Cooley Erickson (MCE) provided mechanical and electrical engineering services for a new campus that included spaces for office, greenhouse, research and development, laboratories, and an interactive demonstration kitchen for its products. The project features a generator for reliable power, energy efficient rooftop units, a dynamic entry lobby, flexible laboratory space, and a purified water system for irrigating the greenhouse.

Additionally, this complex has low intensity laboratories where MCE isolated hazardous processes in fume hood rooms and utilized return air recirculation in the main laboratory for improved energy efficiency.
