The construction of this seven-story research facility nearly doubled the amount of dedicated research space at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The building includes a vivarium with associated support spaces, office and conference spaces, a cafeteria, an enclosed loading dock with associated support spaces, four floors of wet research labs, and one floor of dry research labs. This project is registered as a LEED v. 3.0 project and has achieved LEED Gold certification. Current energy models show the systems will consume approximately 24 percent less energy than baseline systems.
HAWA Inc. provided design services for the MEP systems, including low-voltage structured cabling.
