Tempe-based Sundt Construction Inc. and JV partner DPR commenced construction on a $20-million redevelopment of the Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building on the 30-acre Phoenix Biomedical Campus in downtown Phoenix. Improvements include 48,000 square feet of upgrades on the third and fourth levels and a portion of level five, which will add a wet lab and administrative research spaces to support additional faculty recruitment for the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.
Sundt’s Ben Perrone says, “We are thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with UA advancing the reach of this world-class research space. Building out these floors gives the Biomed Campus additional lab capacity to remain at the frontier of discovery and research.”
Sundt and DPR delivered the 10-story, 245,000-square-foot building in 2017. The LEED Silver certified project features two 80-person seminar rooms, six floors of wet lab space, two floors of dry lab space, centralized water purification system, centralized liquid nitrogen and wet benches. The upper floors consist of the dry labs supporting computational biology and biomechanical engineering.
