The Madison company is putting an addition onto its Cologuard processing lab on Badger Road and is building a new lab, offices and parking at the former site of Spectrum Brands headquarters, just off Schroeder Road.
It also is expanding facilities at two of the three buildings the company occupies in University Research Park, spokesman J.P. Fielder said.

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.

Or from Rayovac Drive, as I filmed it.

Exact will build a second laboratory at the site to process its Cologuard DNA-based stool test to screen for colorectal cancer, as the Wisconsin State Journal reported in October.
The new lab will create 250 jobs “over time,” Exact CEO Kevin Conroy said in an interview.
The company also is remodeling the four-story office building at 601 Rayovac Drive that had housed Spectrum Brands’ headquarters, and it will tear down the aging, adjacent building, at 630 Forward Drive, that had served as Spectrum Brands’ research and development center. A parking ramp will go up in its place.
