In this session, Valerie DeLoach and Ken Sumner provide a detailed case study of the Cedars-Sinai research portfolio expansion highlighting advanced lab planning strategies that leverage Building Information Modeling (BIM), virtual reality, and integrated design and construction for highly complex infrastructure. They offer solutions to the myriad challenges including addition of a cGMP facility, and a flexible and adaptable laboratory platform allowing for expansion and contraction within lab modules over time. They illustrate innovative planning and design solutions that address existing conditions in tenant fit-outs and maintain a cohesive identity across the multiple lab facilities.
