Forced Moves: Relocation of Bio-Research Laboratories

Relocation of eight institutes housed in Building 10 to other locations throughout the campus as part of a program to upgrade the building’s systems. Many of the institutes had significant requirements for bioresearch laboratories and vivaria, including BSL and ABSL facilities. Prior to beginning design, the GES team completed extensive programming and planning sessions with the users, including the principal researchers in order to fully understand their requirements, then continued with site surveys to field verify the existing conditions and systems throughout the facility.
