ZGF, in association with Page, designed Phase I of the Dell Medical School to support the University’s goal of creating an internationally recognized medical school. The project comprises two buildings that will bring together interdisciplinary groups of scientists, clinicians, healthcare professionals, and engineers from multiple fields in the research and clinical environment in an effort to promote dynamic interactions, continuous learning, and ingenious discovery, and to provide the highest level of medical awareness and treatment. The seven-story, 264,430 SF Health Discovery Building will provide space for 90 Principal Investigators in both wet and dry research groups focused on cancer, neuroscience, cardiopulmonary, metabolism, and genetics / genomics research. It will also house three major imaging modalities for research and clinical use. The 10-story, 239,370 SF Health Transformation Building has been designed as a flexible core + shell structure, with a parking garage for 1,100 cars to serve the needs of the patients and staff. Connections between the upper levels of the two buildings will serve to enhance synergies between research and clinical care at the Medical School. Both buildings are LEED Gold®.
