Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine – Life Science Building

The Sanford Consortium is a four story 150,000 sf stem cell research facility which includes laboratories, interactive research “pods”, offices, administrative areas, and an interconnecting classroom auditorium. The structural engineering for this design-build project was completed by Hope-Amundson Structural Engineers, which is now Coffman Engineers.

The research building consists of cast in place concrete and the auditorium is constructed with longspan structural steel framing.

The Sanford Consortium is a collaboration between the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology, and the University of California, San Diego. The project was awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
