Weill Medical College, New Laboratory Building
This project involved the creation of a new 65,000 s.f laboratory building from an existing former Rolls Royce show room and parking garage. The project involved digging a new cellar, adding one research and 2 mechanical floor on top of the building, new stairs elevator core and structure and new facade work. The decision to renovate the existing building was made due to the overbuilt floor plates which would not have been possible with a new construction. There are 3 floors of laboratories designed with flexible modular benches, 2 floor of offices and an animal vivarium. Liabilities like an existing building column that had to be left in the new lobby space became assets with the addition of a glass vitrine and highlight accent lights The large mechanical grille required by the lab on the exterior was designed to harken back to the grill of a Rolls Royce.
