The project is an interior fit-out, constructed in a completed core and shell building, to provide a new biomedical research facility, and has LEED CI Gold certification.
The 120,000 square-foot project encompasses complete fit-out of Floors 1, 2, 3, and 4 as generic research laboratories conforming to Yale School of Medicine guidelines, and fit-out of the basement for a vivarium and general building support space. The vivarium was designed in collaboration with departmental staff members. Other program elements include environmental rooms, microscopy lab, stem cell research capabilities, conference rooms, lounges, and administrative offices.
Research laboratories were designed for Yale interdepartmental programs as generic lab modules with flexible casework. The First Floor provides research space for human translational immunobiology; the Second Floor is designated for stem cell research, a portion of which is federally funded. The Third and Fourth Floors are occupied by the vascular biology and transplantation program.
