Skanska & VA Tech Carilion Biomedical Research Addition

Skanska USA announced that it has achieved the “topping out” milestone at the Virginia Tech Carilion Biomedical Research Addition, a 140,000-square-foot building on the Virginia Tech Carilion Health Sciences and Technology Campus in Roanoke, VA.
The milestone was commemorated by the raising of a special steel beam, signed by students, faculty, staff, and health-care providers associated with Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic, and members of the construction team. Virginia Tech President Tim Sands and Roanoke Mayor Sherman Lea were among the dignitaries attending the event.
“This milestone marks another step in our successful relationship with Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic in Roanoke,” said Greg Peele, executive vice president and general manager of Skanska’s building operations in Virginia/North Carolina. “We’re playing a supportive role in the growth of the development of a vibrant biomedical research sector that is attracting an ever-growing highly-trained technical work force in the region.”
This project, while contracted with Carilion Clinic, is a collaboration between Carilion Clinic and Virginia Tech. The four-story building with an atrium and multiple green roofs will provide state-of-the-art research facilities for enhanced biomedical research programs in six major thematic areas including:
• Body device interfaces
• Brain health and disorders
• Cardiovascular science
• Infectious diseases and immunology
• Metabolism and obesity
• Comparative oncology
The building will house:
• Next-generation core instrumentation facilities including those for molecular, cellular and whole-body imaging;
• Powerful computing facilities;
• Wet laboratories requiring direct ventilation and specialized piped utilities for water and various gases;
• MRI and CT scanning; and
• High resolution electron microscopy, necropsy, and pathology.
The expansion will be physically connected by an elevated walkway to the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute, previously constructed by Skanska and completed in 2010. That four-story, 152,850-square-foot building comprises a medical school, research institute and 52,000 square feet of lower level structured parking.
AECOM is the architect for the Virginia Tech Carilion Biomedical Research Addition, which is expected to be completed in April 2020.
