Center for Genomics Research at the Lerner Research Building - Cleveland, Ohio
Client: Cleveland Clinic
Scope: 152,000 SF
Construction Cost: $42 Million
Completion Date: 2005
The state-of-the-art, six story Center for Genomics Research Building at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute houses the new Genetics and Stem Cell Research Laboratories on all floors, as well as Administrative Offices and Conference Rooms for the lab Primary Investigators. KAI provided A&E services as part of the Krill Co. Design Build Team for the Shell Building and subsequent various Tenant Improvements projects.
The Shell Building Preconstruction Design schedule was limited to four months, while the project involved a very complex building Program. The site itself was a particular challenge because the building needed to connect multiple existing CC buildings and span over East 96th St.
Despite the many challenges faced in the design and construction of this world-class facility, the “fast track” Project was constructed under budget and opened ahead of schedule.
