This is 36,000 SF, four story addition that includes a new mechanical penthouse. The facility provides for collaborative research needs, including a human functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) laboratory suite, BSL 2 wet labs, TEM/SEM suites, vivarium research and vivarium holding rooms. This new facility provides state-of-the-art laboratories where scientists and physicians from across the University can converge to ask some of the most pressing questions in modern science.

At the Owner’s request, Moses Engineering served as the prime consultant, coordinating all architectural, structural, civil and landscape architecture consultants, as well as serving as LEED Administrator and lead commissioning agent. In a more traditional role, Moses Engineering also designed all MEPF systems, successfully satisfying NIH requirements for redundancy and design mandates within budget.
