A Paul Rudolph designed building, originally commissioned in 1969 for Burroughs-Wellcome, will house new research labs for United Therapeutics. The Research Triangle Park location was purchased from GlaxoSmithKline in June 2012. Known as the Elion-Hutchings Building, the 700,000 ft2 facility's renovation will preserve historic aspects of the complex and demolish and replace other areas not visible from the road.
Construction on Bowling Green's new Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) laboratory is expected to begin this summer. The facility will be located near Bowling Green State University's science buildings. Construction could be complete by fall 2014.
The concept for this prototype science park was to integrate a sustainable approach; a LEED project approach; a net zero energy, water, food, waste, and biofuels approach; a closed-loop design approach; and a regenerative design approach, all together. The result of the integration is a high-quality, low-energy, self-sustaining community that has all of the functions it needs to support itself.
The Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB) is a unique, multi-use facility, housing undergraduate science education, medical and dental professional programs, as well as advanced biomedical research. Located on a new campus within a dense urban area of Portland, the site is at equal distance from Oregon Health and Science University's (OHSU's) Marquam Hill campus and Portland State University (PSU).
A new report by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) says Congress and the White House must agree on a federal budget by Jan. 2, or massive mandatory spending cuts will kick in, potentially wreaking havoc on the building industry.
The Cornell NYC Tech campus, planned for Roosevelt Island with a 2017 debut, will combine academic/research facilities with business incubators and boasts a "lilypad" of PV cells floating five stories in the air. The design, by Morphosis Architects, is part of what will be New York City's first net-zero building.
Mention the word "archetype" during laboratory design discussions and watch the eyes of owners and researchers glaze over. No doubt they are uninterested in what seems to be a concept germane to architecture and unnecessary for their knowledge.
After announcing the closure of its historic research campus in Nutley, N.J., international pharma giant Roche has revealed plans to open a translational facility in New York City.
Novartis AG has announced plans to create a $600 million laboratory and office complex in Cambridge, Mass., across from existing company facilities on Massachusetts Ave.
As of the writing of this report in June 2012, construction costs are on the rise from last year, with costs increasing from their post-crash decline. Overall, costs have risen about 2% from 2011, and construction costs in the R&D sector have risen about 2% since January 2011. Construction costs are expected to rise between 3% and 4% during 2012 going into year 2013.
The Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research is the first addition to the Naval Research Laboratory's 130-acre campus in nearly a decade.
The 2013 Laboratory Design Conference will be held at the J.W. Marriott Houston Galleria on April 8-10. Advantage Business Media currently seeks abstract submissions for presentations to be given at this professional meeting, accredited by the American Institute of Architects.
At 40 years old, Gallahue Hall at Butler University in Indianapolis has plenty of character and subtle nuances that left an impression of nostalgic collegiate academia. Unfortunately, the facility also left users with a headache.
This 330,000-ft 2 , $175.3-million facility, focused on biology, information technology, and engineering, includes an underground research floor, three research floors, a ground-level "Town Center," an auxiliary service building, and a mechanical penthouse. Its unusual and effective building organization, strong sense of public outreach, and high degree of flexibility and social engineering led judges to honor the project as Laboratory of the Year 2012.
VGTI Florida's new research and development facility boasts nine major laboratories where scientists will conduct research to identify treatments and therapies to help the human immune system fight cancer, infectious and chronic diseases like HIV/AIDS, and arthritis.
Pegasus Global Holdings LLC, a private technology development firm headquartered in Washington, D.C., has announced plans to build The Center for Innovation, Testing and Evaluation (CITE): an uninhabited city in the New Mexico desert, near Hobbs.
New laboratory in the Purdue Life and Health Sciences Park will be specifically devoted to drug discovery, a field that has not had a purpose-built home at Purdue until now. It will partially replace space in the Wetherill Laboratory of Chemistry and will be designed with open laboratories for maximum adaptability and collaborative work, as well as sharing of equipment and core resources.
PDF files of all the presentations from the recent Pittsburgh Laboratory Design Conference are now available for purchase on either an individual-use or organizationwide-use basis.
Creating a science laboratory requires close and constant collaboration between planning engineers and scientists—from the broad conceptual thinking in the initial workshops through the development of floorplans. The collaboration includes discussions of the kind of science to be practiced in the lab, diagrams of the basic workflow, a conceptual layout, and, finally, the specification of fixed equipment.
Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y., is moving forward with plans to create CornellNYC Tech, a new campus on Roosevelt Island.
The Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) will create a 10.25-acre research park within the 72-acre Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, Calif.
