Initiated in 1997 by community leaders to provide specialized facilities with laboratory, cleanroom, manufacturing and office space for high tech companies, the InterTech Science Park has grown to include 12 facilities with 844,000 square feet and over 25 tenants. The purpose was to create an environment and space that would attract creative companies to Shreveport and retain home grown talent.
The BRF constructed three
- The Virginia K. Shehee Biomedical Research Institute, a 160,000 square foot, $37 million research facility with 56 laboratories where 200 investigators and technicians from LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport conduct basic research.
- InterTech’s central facility, InterTech 1, is a 60,000 square foot, $12.2 million incubator for new bioscience and technology businesses.
- A 33,000 square foot cleanroom manufacturing facility, where pharmaceutical company Alfasigma now resides.
InterTech is an 800-acre campus bounded by I-20 and I-49, and is located in inner-city Shreveport near LSU School of Medicine and University Health Shreveport hospital. The long-term master plan is to continue growth with facilities and amenities that promote and improve the community and increase economic opportunities for Caddo Parish.
