Designing CUIMC All-Electric Academic Research Lab Building

Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is constructing a new academic research lab building for the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons designed to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. The all-electric academic research lab building will be the first of its kind in New York City and will expand CUIMC's research capacity with laboratory and office space while reducing energy consumption. The new 8-story, 75,000 SF facility will connect to Columbia’s School of Nursing, which AKF also designed, as well as the Russ Berrie Medical Science Pavilion.

We are proud that our MEP/FP engineering and sustainable design expertise will help push this project toward reaching goals set forth by CUIMC and New York City legislation. It is an honor to be a part of this groundbreaking all-electric academic research building! Read more.
