RESEARCH ADDITION, BUILDING 205

WestEast designed a 27,118 SF three-story addition to Research Building 205 at the Temple VAMC. The addition included a 10,422 SF animal facility and 8,783 SF of laboratory space and additional office space for the research staff. The building addition is separated from the existing facility to preserve daylight to existing laboratories and offices. The second floor will provide six new labs equipped identically to the existing facility’s current labs, and the third floor will contain offices to support the entire research facility and mechanical spaces. This facility is designed to comply with the Unified Facilities Criteria and VA Architectural Standards and is categorized “Mission Critical.”
