Exact Sciences unveils more building plans at former Spectrum Brands site

Exact Sciences Corp. — the Madison company whose Cologuard DNA stool test screens for colorectal cancer — is building more than just a big laboratory building at its new campus just off Schroeder Road on the West Side.

Exact is submitting plans to the city to construct a 77,000-square-foot addition onto the existing four-story office building at 1 Exact Lane, formerly 601 Rayovac Drive.

The offices used to house the headquarters for consumer products company Spectrum Brands, now in Middleton. Exact bought the property in November and is updating the structure, which sat vacant for four years. Exact already has moved several hundred of its call center and administrative employees there.
