SCIENCE + TECHNOLOGY GIANTS: Incubator model is reimagining research and lab design
The Francis Crick Institute, which opens this summer in London, epitomizes the trend in science and technology projects to combine disciplines and encourage transparency. The Building Team includes HOK (architect and lead designer), AKT-II (SE), Arup (PM, services engineer), CBRE (planning consultant), Turner & Townsend (cost consultant), HCD (approved inspector), RLB (CDM consultant), Cordless (ICT consultant), Exova Warrington (fire consultant), and Horus (security consultant).

The 980,000-sf, $931 million facility is the result of a unique financing mechanism that brought together three of the U.K.’s heaviest funders of biomedical research—the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, and the Wellcome Trust—and three leading universities—University College London, Imperial College London, and King’s College London. “The Crick,” as it’s known, is organized into four “laboratory neighborhoods” that encourage multidisciplinary interaction among its 1,500 scientists. Offices and labs have floor-to-ceiling glazing. The facility is designed around two atria that allow visibility throughout the building and between floors.
The design emphasizes communal space by enabling people to peer into multiple floors, according to Larry Malcic, AIA, LEED GA, SVP/Design Principal in the London office of HOK, which designed the lab. The idea, he said, is to “put science on display and promote collaboration.” Projects like The Crick practically force scientists, engineers, and technicians from disparate fields to interact. “Things are happening between disciplines now, and there are a lot more buildings with oddball combinations of sciences,” says HDR Design Principal Dan Rew, AIA, LEED AP. The state of Maryland’s $180 million Public Health Lab, which opened last year at Forest City’s Science Park, in Baltimore, exemplifies this pattern. HDR provided architectural and engineering services for the five-story, 200,000-sf lab, which does testing, consulting, and offers regulatory support related to infectious disease, epidemiology, environmental, and regulatory public health issues.
The open-lab concept allows operations to scale up and mobilize quickly in the event of an emergency, says HDR VP Warren Hendrickson, AIA, LEED AP BD+C. The ground floor, where first responders train, is visible from the street. The building is also linked to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Seattle, the 270,000-sf headquarters of the Allen Institute is programmed for team science, says Kay Kornovich, RA, LEED AP, NCARB, Managing Director, Perkins+Will, Seattle. She says the institute wanted to break down walls between “carpet” people (managers) and “vinyl” people (researchers). The building, which opened last December, focuses on brain and cell sciences. It is organized in a series of “petals” grouped around a six-story atrium. Cantilevered into the atrium are glass-walled collaboration pods outfitted with comfortable seating and whiteboards. “In any part of the building, you can see science and meetings going on,” says Kornovich.
Saving money can be the impetus for combining disciplines and buildings. Shepley Bulfinch’s design for the University of Houston’s Health and Science Building II connects the nine-story, 300,000-sf structure to H&S Building I. This will allow them to share loading docks, animal care facilities, and expensive equipment like NMR machines, says Luke Voiland, AIA, LEED AP, Principal in the firm’s Houston office. “Clients are trying to do more with less, like bringing physics and engineering departments together,” adds Ed Burton, SmithGroupJJR’s S+T National Practice Leader. He points to the $80 million, 136,500-sf Senator Daniel K. Inouye Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency Center for Excellence, which opened last September at Joint Base Pearl Harbor–Hickam, in Oahu, Hawaii. The lab consolidates operations that had been spread out over three military installations.
Some S+T facilities are incorporating business development into their objectives. Half of the space in the H&S building at the University of Houston will be used to train future pharmacists, and the other half for drug discovery research. This trend might explain why computational, simulation, and STEM labs are all the rage now. “The incubator mentality is creeping into labs,” says HDR’s Rew. Last September, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, in collaboration with the U.S. Energy Department’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, completed the 210-sf Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy demonstration project. AMIE 1.0 is a 3D-printed building designed to produce and store renewable power and share energy wirelessly with a 3D-printed vehicle developed by the DOE. The project aimed to demonstrate the use of bidirectional wireless energy technology and high-performance materials to achieve independence from the power grid at peak-demand periods. Philip Enquist, FAIA, SOM’s Partner in Charge of Urban Design and Planning, sees AMIE 1.0 as “the beginning of a new chapter” in building for a resilient future.
Leo A Daly is working on the Emergent Technologies Institute, located on 6.5 acres of Florida Gulf Coast University’s campus, in Fort Myers. Public and private researchers will develop and test wind, solar, and agricultural technologies at this 24,600-sf incubator lab. “We designed an infrastructure that provides a backbone for research, but remains adaptable to the academic and business communities’ needs,” says Robert Thomas, AIA, LEED AP, Leo A Daly’s Principal of S+T.

Kenyans to run standard gauge railway
The standard gauge railway in Kenya will be fully run by Kenyans after its construction is completed the country’s transport ministry has said. The government of Kenya sees skills transfer as a major issue in order to ensure seamless operation and management of the railway line upon its official launch. Kenya’s Principal Secretary for Transport Irungu Nyakera says that the current jobs that are being done by the Chinese will be left to Kenyans who are currently training on Railway technology.He added that the government will ensure that all graduates in railway technologies gets jobs that are expected to be created by the multi-billion project whose construction is nearing completion.
“Most Chinese firms are carrying out most of the jobs in the transport sector because we lack specialized personnel who can carry out the job perfectly but in the next few years most Kenyans will have occupied the jobs” he added. The transport PS said that currently the government is ensuring that the Kenyan professionals are exposed to the current construction technology to ensure that they carry out various infrastructure projects in the country. Mr Nyakera added that they are training a number of people on railway technology to ensure that they fulfill their manifesto that they pledged to create more jobs in the Kenyan soil.
“So far, the standard gauge railway project has created job opportunities for Kenyans with China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) having directly employed 19,000 workers and additional 8,000-plus employed by sub-contractors,” he added. The officials also added that they seek to enhance infrastructure sector in Kenya and lauded the Kenya Railway Training Institute’s efforts in ensuring that they are training a number of human workforce to fulfill the Agenda. He added that they will ensure they pump money to various training institutions to ensure that they get the best graduates to be able to carry out various projects that are on the boom in the African.
