Stowers Institute for Medical Research Support Facility BioMed Valley & Vivarium

The Stowers Institute for Medical Research Support Facility renovation consisted of converting a warehouse and storage facility into new research laboratories, lab support space, a data center, a vivarium and a new central plant.

SIZE


280,000 sq ft

The vivarium housed up to 12,000 cages with the ability to nearly double its capacity. The primary function of the vivarium is to house a core colony. Using modular construction, the animal rooms were factory constructed using multi-trade prefabrication and transported to the site. The project also included a new incubator scale lab for BioMed Valley Discoveries (BVD), a research-and-development organization that develops basic biomedical discoveries into applications to improve human health.
