Genomic Medicine facility finds home on Farmington, Conn., campus
The Jackson Laboratory’s facility for its new genomic medicine institute in Farmington, Conn., will be built on a 17-acre site on the University of Connecticut’s Health Center campus. Construction for the 173,000-sf facility is scheduled to begin in 2013; the institute will lease space in the interim. Upon completion, the facility will house 300 biomedical researchers, technicians, and support staff in computing facilities and laboratories. Tsoi/Kobus & Associates of Cambridge, Mass., and Connecticut-based Centerbrook Architects will plan and design the facility, and Gilbane Building Co.’s Glastonbury, Conn., office will manage the construction.
