The 155,000-square-foot Research and Technology Building will be located in the southwest corner of the University of Washington’s campus. The six-story building is primarily a laboratory and office facility with 67 stalls of underground parking.
The project is being constructed under a fast-track design-build approach. When finished, the Mortenson-led team will operate and maintain the facility for 30 years. It is reportedly the first design-build-operate-maintain project for the university.
The Mortenson proposal was chosen as the “best value” of all proposals based on the long-term life-cycle cost of the construction, operation and maintenance of the facility, plus design innovation and fitting the building’s context within the campus.
The facility will be able to accommodate tenants of many sizes, from 500 square feet to 50,000 square feet, and nearly any research need, from dry labs to wet labs and from vivarium to vibration-sensitive research.
