Today’s groundbreaking of a 130,000 square-foot, five-story headquarters for Exact Sciences at University Research Park (URP) is further evidence of the cancer detection business’s commitment to Madison. But the building’s placement also shows that the Park is determined to adapt to an era when high-technology workers show an increasing interest in denser, more urban surroundings.
The Exact building, located near South Whitney Way, is expected to house 500 employees when finished in 2020.
“From our headquarters, Exact Sciences will continue to lead the war on cancer through early detection,” said Kevin Conroy, chairman and CEO of Exact Sciences. “Our product pipeline is strong and we expect this site to be home to new breakthroughs in cancer screening and diagnostics that will better the lives of people around the world.”
