June 30, 2017

McCarthy Building Companies celebrated the topping out of the $120 million Biodesign Institute C Research Building at Arizona State University (ASU) Wednesday. The building represents the third in ASU’s Biodesign Institute complex located on the main campus in Tempe, according to a press release.

 

The new 189,000-square-foot research facility includes five stories, a mechanical penthouse, plus a basement that connects with the ASU Biodesign Institute B building and will house the world’s first compact free electron x-ray laser. The project is comprised of 66,000-square-feet of flexible lab space for up to 80 lead researchers and 300 support staff who will be supporting ASU’s goal of increasing research revenue to $700 million by 2020. The building’s adaptable design will accommodate multiple types of scientific research, including chemistry, biological sciences and engineering research. The building, comprised mostly of wet laboratories and offices, also includes high-bay spaces. 

 

“Topping out marks a significant milestone in the construction process, signaling the final beam placement of a new structure,” said Justin Kelton, president of McCarthy Building Companies’ Southwest division. “For a research facility of world-class caliber like Biodesign Institute C represents, topping out is even more meaningful because it brings with it significant hope for our future and the promise of new discoveries and innovations.”
