Legacy building renovation delivers cutting-edge entrepreneurial research environment

Renovation of an occupied 1929 manufacturing building has provided New York Stem Cell Foundation's new Research Institute with consolidated administrative offices, scientists' workstations, wet bench and specialty core labs in a single, collaborative environment. Session leaders connect the institute’s collaborative goals with programming, planning, and layout decisions, and survey the design and engineering solutions employed including high-performance mechanical equipment and infrastructure solutions for ultra-clean research technologies. They set out project execution strategies, identify lessons-learned, and illustrate how the innovative repurposing has jumpstarted development of a collaborative research hub for Life Sciences.
