WSU - Biomedical Research Building
Wayne State University’s Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building opened its doors in 2015 and is the largest construction project to date for the University. The $93 million project transformed the city block at Amsterdam and Woodard into a research facility. The building features nearly 200,000-square-feet of space for 500 researchers and scientists and 68 principal investigators. It includes both wet and dry laboratories, faculty offices, common areas, as well as clinical space. Faculty members across the entire campus populate the Research Building. The School of Medicine, the College of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the School of Social Work, and the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences conducts research at the facility. 93% of the structure is occupied by Wayne State and the remaining seven percent houses partners from the Henry Ford Health System, including its bone and joint research program and biomechanics motion laboratory.
Construction on the project began in October 2012. The Intentio team converted the electrical AutoCAD model into a full Revit model for their client and added smart data to the model.
