New Haven Building Boom

As New Haven experiences a boom with biotech, housing, and massive redevelopment efforts, we are proud to share our strong presence in the area and some of the ways we have contributed our expertise to projects that are fueling New Haven’s transformation!

AKF has provided engineering, design, and technology expertise to Yale University and Yale New Haven Health, two institutions driving this boom with groundbreaking new research and innovation. We have also been instrumental in the completion of projects for Alexion Pharmaceuticals at 100 College Street; Master Planning at New Haven Science Park; and fit-outs at Winchester Works for tenants such as Halda Therapeutics, Artizan Biosciences, and Quantum-SI. AKF’s work in New Haven’s science and technology sector also includes studies for AtlasXomics and Bio CT.

As a result of New Haven’s biotech and life sciences boom, thousands of new rental units have been built in the last several years or are currently in construction. AKF and our lighting brand Lightcraft have contributed to the design of several, including 18 High and Acme Timber Lofts. 40% of the new housing units in New Haven are designated as affordable, restricted to specific income guidelines, to ensure the building boom does not financially displace residents.

Here's to the future of New Haven!
