In order to meet an increasing demand for cellular laboratory space, Ryan Biggs | Clark Davis provided the structural design of a 40,000+ square-foot, one-story addition at the north side of the existing building and related renovation work at the Bailey Road Clinical Laboratory (Central Laboratory) for the University of Rochester Medical Center.

The addition has a 6,000-square-foot mechanical penthouse, and the remainder of the addition is designed for a future second story. The addition consists of structural steel framing with a rigid frame lateral system and concrete spread footing foundations.

The project consolidated the specialized lab spaces into an open-plan laboratory to allow for more flexible uses. Laboratories are used for clinical trials, microbiology, and toxicology. The addition provided space for offices, a compounding pharmacy, and clinical laboratories. The Central Laboratory is full-service and an integral part of the large academic medical center.
