Indiana University Breaks Ground on Neurosciences Research Building

Published 8/9/2012

Indiana University broke ground on the $52 million Neurosciences Research Building in Indianapolis in August of 2012. Designed by BSA LifeStructures and built by Messer Construction, the 137,000-sf facility is a collaborative initiative between Indiana University School of Medicine and Indiana University Health. The translational research building will unite clinical practice with the study of neurological disorders by providing inpatient care, outpatient care, and research in one location. The facility layout fosters collaboration through shared technical support and centralized analytical facilities. Flexible equipment and resources allow the research spaces to adapt to different discovery pursuits and adjust to technology over time. The exterior of the Neurosciences Research Building features an efficient glass skin that will help the building seek LEED Silver Certification and provide the interior with an abundance of natural light. Completion is expected by 2014.
