Stanford University dedicated the $210 million Biomedical Innovation Building in November of 2020 in Palo Alto, Calif. Designed by ZGF Architects with Research Facilities Design (RFD) as laboratory design consultant, the 190,439-gsf 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. Highly flexible laboratories utilize a mobile benching system and overhead service carriers. The 130,067-asf facility includes animal procedure rooms, specialized instrumentation suites, a tissue culture, and a central glasswash and sterilization hub. The project was built by general contractor Whiting-Turner with Gayner Engineers as MEP Engineer of Record. Construction began on the facility in late 2017.
