Today, Invivogen supplies many biotech companies with the materials they need to do their research. Materials like cell lines, cell culture, antibodies, genes, and many of the tools used in the study to fight COVID-19. The Invivogen building is iconic and truly one of a kind. However, over the years it became dated and worn. When the owner modernized the building, they modified the south edge of the water feature to disconnect it from the larger fountain system and prepare the area to become a much-needed garden patio, directly accessible from the building interior. The purpose of this new garden space was two-fold: Invivogen now needed functional outdoor space for staff and visitors. Also, this was an opportunity to dedicate a garden addition to the late founder, Girard Tiraby, who died in 2017.

The McCullough team was honored to work with Invivogen to see this goal come to life. The garden experience extended around the side to include an updated entrance along the front of the building and now includes a shade canopy seating area, two specimen Olive trees, an outdoor kitchen, a hardwood deck, a lower turf gaming area, a firepit seating area and smaller, more intimate gathering spaces.
