This project involved renovating an entire
floor of an existing high-rise research tower at the
University of California, San Francisco. The program
consists of space for five principal investigators including
open laboratories, support rooms including an imaging
laboratory for use of microscopes, computer based imaging
and video, two tissue culture rooms, and a room to house
refrigerators and centrifuges, a histology laboratory,
computer facility, equipment room, cold room and a specialized
laboratory, and offices and support spaces.
Four Years have elapsed between original
schematic design and construction. BlakeDrucker Architects
has actively participated in grant writing, value engineering,
estimating, and full A/E services. This project was
entirely in 3D BIM.
The project completed construction in
March of 2010, 2 months ahead of schedule. It was truely
a perfect storm of BIM LEAN and GREEN.
