Next-level prefabrication and modular construction solutions for research facilities

Assoc VP, Plant Operations & Housing

Here you’ll see the what modular construction methods can do for modernized research facility capital initiatives – making demanding sites feasible, shortening project timelines, and reducing cost. Alex Kogan delivers a case study of Rockefeller University’s 160,000-sf Kravis Research Building, part of a campus expansion which spans a 6-lane highway in New York City. He details the 21st-century project delivery strategies employed, and the out-of-the-box solutions for major hurdles. He illustrates the results: cutting-edge research space that allows for growth and contraction of research groups; for future modifications to accommodate program change; and for cost-effective standardized laboratory fit-out components that can be reasonably customized by each user.
