OHSU RLSB Collaborative Lab CoreBack to projects

In 2017, OHSU in partnership with the Knight Cancer Institute sought to increase the availability of hoteling laboratory services, supporting office space, and collaboration opportunities on the South Waterfront. ORANGEWALLstudios, partnered with JEDunn Construction for cost estimating services, was called on to provide programming and planning services. The approximately 20,500 gsf shelled seventh floor of the Robertson Life Sciences building, adjacent to the Knight Cancer Building (then under construction) was evaluated and programmed for use as a generic Wet Lab with six fully vented fume hoods as well as a Bio-chem lab with twenty-eight fume hoods. The programming and cost estimating services provided valuable data and information to serve strategic planning for the growth of translational research and collaboration spaces in the ever-growing south waterfront research campus.
