The new four-story 130,000-square-foot facility was completed in August 2015. The lab facility serves as a centralized brain trust for scientific collaboration in biomedical research including nanotechnology, robotics, tissue engineering and imaging.
Significant to IDS is the commitment to achieve the ultimate level of sustainability. This resulted in an unusual approach to the design development of the project. Often it is the architectural design that leads the engineering process, but here it was an engineering-driven energy model that formed the architecture.
