The Methodist Hospital Research Institute
This project was located within an existing facility on a tight, urban site, which required workforce to adhere to strict areas
This build-out provided approximately 76,000 Square Feet of lab and office space
Gilbane provided preconstruction and construction management at-risk services for the build-out of The Methodist Hospital Research Institute floors four, ten, and eleven. The build-out improved approximately 76,000 square feet of lab and office space on multiple levels of the institute.
The fourth floor includes a pathology/necropsy lab as well as a histology lab and procedure rooms. There is a glass wash area and dark rooms. Construction involved working in and over an existing vivarium.
Floors ten and eleven are large open plan spaces with bench top lab tables and support space. There are cold rooms and a service corridor.
The project site was located within the Texas Medical Center on a tight urban site. The MHRI is a fully operational laboratory building with connections to the MH which required construction access to be limited to only the loading dock, back of the house corridors, and the service elevator.
