The University of Washington will be at the forefront in research services with its new Bioengineering-Genome Sciences Building.

The concrete-framed, 265,000-square-foot structure will house some of the most sophisticated laboratories available. Among these state-of-the-art research facilities will be: a bioengineering physiology teaching lab, a molecular bioengineering teaching lab, instrumentation teaching lab, two computer labs and other specialized research labs.

Construction began in September and is expected to be completed in December 2005. A complex façade, featuring terra cotta, metal panels, curtainwall and cast stone, will enclose the five-level bioengineering wing and the four-level genome sciences wing. The project includes a 60-seat seminar room, a 200-seat auditorium and a cafeteria.

The facility will also provide conference space, offices and a variety of specialized areas. Wings will be connected by an indoor walkway.
