The Ohio State University is constructing the $237.5 million Interdisciplinary Research Facility in Columbus. Anchoring a new innovation district, the 305,000-sf building will accommodate biomedical, life sciences, engineering, and environmental science research programs. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli and Moody Nolan to foster interaction and collaboration, the five-story structure will provide wet labs, computational labs, core labs, a vivarium, and a variety of support spaces. Two floors will accommodate the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology, and a 29,000-sf plaza will offer an inviting venue for outdoor events. The project is being built by a joint venture of Whiting-Turner and Corna Kokosing, a subsidiary of Kokosing Construction Company. Work began on the facility in September of 2020 and occupancy is expected in June of 2023.
