- Substantial Completion of Stanford Bass Biology and Regional Loading Dock -
June 15, 2018
Punch-list is in progress for the substantially completed 135,000 sq.ft. Bass Biology Research Building and Regional Loading Dock.
The new building will encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary work both within the department and across departmental boundaries by providing the opportunity to bring more members of the Biology department together. Laboratory research space are provided for wet lab biochemistry research and computational research to support 29 faculty members. The building is comprised of four stories above grade and one below which includes a small vivarium, plus vibration stable space for sensitive biophysical research.
The relocation and expansion of the Stanford University Mass Spectroscopy (SUMS) shared instrumentation space from Mudd Chemistry is located at the lower level of the building. The mechanical system consists of an innovative distributed cooling and heating VAV system with heat recovery and optimized controls. Based on our energy simulation, we expect the Bass Biology Building will be most energy efficient research building on Campus when completed. Design work has been begun for the last phase of the project, which is the demolition of the adjacent building, Stauffer III.
