University of Miami Biomedical Research Building

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Biomedical Research Building houses seven floors of wet laboratories and two floors of vivarium for the Miller School of Medicine, as well as an MRI and CT scanner. Departments assigned to the laboratory space include cancer, diabetes, ophthalmology, pathology, and surgery. The vivarium for the Division of Veterinary Resources includes holding rooms for rodents, nonhuman primates, dogs, and pigs. The Ninth Floor includes cGMP laboratory cleanrooms for cell and gene therapy. The building is supported by a 551,000 square foot, ten story parking garage that houses a 26,000 square foot central energy plant – one of the region’s largest – that will ultimately generate 14 MW of back-up power for the new research facility and other campus buildings. Sustainable features include condensate recovery systems, runaround loop energy recovery systems, daylighting control systems, water saving faucets, dual flush toilets, low flow urinals, and commissioning of HVAC and plumbing systems.
