The Washington University School of Medicine plans to break ground this summer on a $75 million, 138,000-square-foot research facility in the Central West End that will house researchers in genetics, genomics and regenerative biology.
The new building is expected to enable more interdisciplinary research and offer greater flexibility than the school’s existing facilities. It will be built with an eye toward conserving energy and water, to make it more environmentally friendly and help lower costs.
Boston-based firm Goody Clancy and St. Louis-based Christner are designing the building. St. Louis-based Clayco is the general contractor.
