The new Neurosciences Research Building and parking garage for the Washington University School of Medicine brings together nearly 100 research teams focused on studying the brain and body’s nervous system. The project includes a wet lab office and research space, and associated animal holding and procedure facilities. Additionally, the scope includes four components:
- A 584,050-square-foot, 11-story research building for about 900 employees
- A 24,775-square-foot, 2-story utility plant that includes five 1,250-ton chillers, five cooling towers, and two 3,000-kilowatt emergency power generators
- A 593,722-square-foot, 9-story, 1,846-car parking garage featuring racks for bicycle parking, 36 electric vehicle charging stations, and infrastructure to later add solar panels to the garage roof.
- A pedestrian connection bridge constructed from the existing link endpoint through the St. Louis Children’s Hospital garage to this new building
