Pennington Biomedical Research Center
This BASIC SCIENCES LAB BUILDING (JV) is the first structure of POST ARCHITECTS' 30-building Master Plan for Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, LA (see Master Plan Projects).
A Joint Venture with WHL Architects, the five-story, 178,000 sf building houses two floors of lab space with two interstitial mechanical floors for maximum utility flexibility. The perimeter labs are modulated units that are shared by a number of researchers and support staff with office space provided at the corners of the building. A Clinical Sciences Building is scheduled for completion in 2005.
