Delon Hampton & Associates (DHA) provided civil engineering services for the seven-story life sciences building, totaling 278,000 SF above grade, and one level partially below grade. The project also includes a pedestrian bridge connecting the new life sciences building to the existing Johns Hopkins Medical Center. The ground level features the lobby, retail space, mechanical spaces, life science support space, and the loading dock. A mechanical penthouse is fashioned on level seven. The project utilized “core and shell” construction.
Clad with precast concrete panels and expansive curtain walls, the Life Sciences building responds to existing surrounding architecture of the phased life science and office development project. Since the building accommodates multiple tenants, all of the buildings systems are designed for ultimate flexibility in individual tenant fit out and to meet the demands of the biomedical research community.
