Stanford University opened the $107 million Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Biology Research Building in March of 2019 in Palo Alto, Calif. Designed by Flad Architects and Ennead Architects to promote collaboration and interaction, the 133,000-sf facility provides wet biochemistry labs, dry computational labs, hybrid wet/dry research areas, and classrooms and offices for the Department of Biology. Featuring sophisticated vibration mitigation technologies, the two-wing structure comprises four stories above ground with a core lab for mass spectroscopy located below grade. A small vivarium is also located in the building, which was delivered via design-assist methodology with Gayner Engineers as MEP engineer of record and Whiting Turner as general contractor. Site work began on the project in July of 2015 and construction was completed in summer of 2018.
