As a valued partner with NASA since the 1960s, RS&H started the project with a contract for HVAC repairs, which blossomed into laboratory repairs, laboratory design, and a master plan that would consolidate the ARES division from six buildings down to two.
Going beyond the benefit of now having aesthetically pleasing laboratories that offer advanced research capabilities, Mayo Clinic has the potential to offer a tremendous long-term impact to the local community, as well as the general healthcare community.
Strategically located in the heart of Florida’s Northeast Biotech Cluster, Foundation Park was created to provide modern laboratories and office facilities for life science companies of all sizes and through all phases of development.
RS&H worked within a collaborative design-build team to design a 96,000-square-foot physical sciences energy research laboratory, that will share technologies and diverse research to collaborate on some of the most complex energy challenges facing the global human community.
Building upon the success of the ground-up Advanced Development and Manufacturing Facility completed a few years prior to the COVID-19 pandemic outset, RS&H was tasked with expanding the existing facility.
The facility required a flexible design that would allow emergency access rights to the Department of Defense should they need to take over the facility to produce potential vaccines and treatment for the military forces at a rapid, long scale.
