Mesenchymal and Craniofacial Research Laboratory

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.
