"Thank you very much for the depth of attention you are giving the LifeSource project. Your focus is sharp and you pay attention to every detail. You actively engage the whole of the team in the importance of the work at hand - namely saving lives in our community through the miraculous gifts of organs and tissue, while offering hope and healing to those who have lost a loved one. It is clear to me you take pride in your work and take pride in your partnership with LifeSource. With every step on the path you help fulfill a long term goal for us – a home for organ and tissue donation in the community. Saving more lives."

Not only is this 51,000 square foot building home to over 100 employees, but there is a very special component to this office building – a fully operational surgical suite with laminar (non-turbulent) air flow. Designed as an integral part of the headquarters, constructed as its own separate building, the 10,880 square foot space has its own isolation, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and redundancy systems. With a 6,500 square foot drive-thru donor receiving/ambulatory garage, the recovery team is equipped with an organ preservation, instrument preparation and decontamination, tissue preparation and recovery, and organ preparation and recovery rooms totaling over 2,600 square feet. The unique aspect on the construction process of this distinct area is that it has its very own security system, is completely sound proof from the remaining administrative and support offices, has its own finishes and vendors that are experienced in clean room construction practices.
