Global architecture and design firm Perkins+Will announced that its Miami office recently completed the University of Florida’s (UF) Clinical and Translational Research Building (CTRB).
The new five-story, 120,000 square-foot facilityhouses the Clinical and Translational Science Institute and the UF Institute on Aging as well as several research groups studying topics including biostatistics, epidemiology, Muscular Dystrophy and Health Outcomes and Policy.
“The Clinical and Translational Research Building is a state-of-the-art facility designed to encourage collaborative study by incorporating three main components: healthcare, education and research,” said Pat Bosch, LEED AP, Design Principal with the Perkins+Will Miami office. “It was important to the client and to us that the building foster researchers’ goals of shortening the time from laboratory discovery to bedside treatment.”
The project was funded without using any investment from the State of Florida, drawing on sources such as an American Recovery Act grant and bonds to be paid from the future revenue stemming from research activities.
