Featured Project: NuVasive Ohio Manufacturing Facility

FPBA made its mark in Ohio with 145,000 square feet of tenant improvements designed for NuVasive, Inc., a leading medical device company focused on transforming spine surgery.
Headquartered in San Diego, NuVasive sought to increase its internal manufacturing capabilities by expanding its existing Ohio presence with a new facility dedicated to spinal implant and instrument manufacturing. 
The space features manufacturing, office and support areas, a cafe, large training rooms, fitness rooms, and a social event area built out in three areas. FPBA also provided exterior improvements including the addition of a new entrance canopy to match the scale of the 1,000-foot-long elevation facing Interstate 75.
FPBA is continuing work with NuVasive both in Ohio with a new ISO 8 cleanroom and in San Diego with a new amenities building

Recently Completed: Navigate BioPharma
FPBA recently finished a tenant improvement for Navigate BioPharma, a Novartis subsidiary located in Carlsbad, CA. The 25,000-square-foot lab-office design offers open, shared spaces while retaining a sense of privacy via focus rooms and sound-absorbing devices.
To bring the office to life and incorporate elements of nature, FPBA introduced features such as graphic walls, tubular daylighting and living green wall panels. 

FPBA Culture: 1st Annual FPBA Scavenger Hunt
FPBA's slyest sleuths recently put their heads together for the 1st Annual FPBA Scavenger Hunt. In teams of four, participants worked together to complete challenges and solve riddles based on the firm's projects, racing to different destinations across San Diego. The final riddle reunited the groups, bringing the crew together for beverages at AleSmith Brewing Company. Beer...err...X marks the spot! 

After Hours: Unplug with FPBA Winter Blues
FPBA beat out the winter blues this February with the latest Unplug jam session. With tasty cheese trays, wine and beer, and string instruments of all sizes, FPBA and friends kicked back to play music and unwind after hours.
