Stanford University dedicated the $210 million Biomedical Innovation Building in November of 2020 in Palo Alto, Calif. Designed by ZGF Architects to promote collaboration and innovation, the 225,000-sf facility strategically collocates investigators with expertise in cardiovascular medicine, pediatrics, orthopaedics, immunotherapy, personalized genomics, otolaryngology, and asthma and allergy. Accelerating the translation of research discoveries into new medical therapies, the cross-disciplinary structure features an open layout with meeting spaces and lounges on every floor. Comprising four stories and a basement level, the sustainably designed building provides over 600 lab benches and can accommodate nearly 1,000 faculty, students, and staff. The project team included general contractor Whiting-Turner with Gayner Engineers as MEP Engineer of Record. Construction began on the facility in late 2017.
