I can't begin to say thank you enough. We have line movement, and this is real. You all deserve to take a bow. It is partners like all of you that make these things happen. I am honored to work with each one of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I know we have asked a lot but without you we are nothing. This is the definition of the sum of our parts. I am humbled by your dedication to Ginkgo and all your teams’ efforts. All I can say is well done and thank you.
Douglas Detwiler: Facilities Planning & Site Services, Ginkgo Bioworks
I just wanted to reach out to you all to express Thrive’s appreciation for the outstanding effort by the design and construction team! These certainly are different work conditions for all of us, but I don’t feel that we’ve missed a beat in productivity.
Jerry Nadeau: VP, Head of Facilities, Exact Sciences (formerly Thrive)
LabCentral has been working with Richmond since we launched our first space at 700 Main Street in 2013. They have proven to be an integral partner in our growth and expansion, then a thorough understanding not only of our business model but also of our economic goals. They have helped us design and build each phase of our expansions to meet our dynamic space requirements and our often-out-of-the-box thinking! Richmond is our first and last phone call when a challenging project is on our radar.
Maggie O’Toole: COO, LabCentral
I can’t say enough good things about Richmond, and I will continue to sing the praises of this team as long as people listen. You all stepped it up and then some.

Mike Landsittel, COO, Blueprint Medicines
I’ve been working in the Life Science Biotech Industry since 1984 and have been involved with countless construction projects with my level of responsibilities maturing over the same time-period. It was over 12 years ago when I was first introduced to Richmond, and I’ve been working with them ever since. As a project owner I need a company that is knowledgeable, reliable, responsible, and accountable and Richmond is all of that and more. From site surveys to space planning, from construction to occupancy, they have continuously delivered our projects as designed on-time and on-budget. I am proud of our projects and thankful Richmond was and is part of our team.
Gerard (Pat) Marolda Jr.: Former VP, Agios Pharmaceuticals
