Adaptive Reuse and Renovation: 1950s Hospital Conversion to Modern Research Facility Webinar

The goal of this presentation is to show how a hospital, built over 60 years ago, is being converted into a sustainable, high-performance, 21st century research facility. The lab spaces are programmed to be generic and highly flexible environments that can function as wet bench, lab support or dry lab space with minimal build-outs.

In addition to program flexibility and adaptability, the session will show how the physical characteristics of the former hospital tower (narrow floor-plate, low floor height, continuous strip windows and structural grid designed to accommodate patient rooms) influence the design of an efficient, high-performance, sustainable research building.
