Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is the first new research facility for MSKCC since 1989. One of the tallest laboratory buildings in the world, the 692,000 sq. ft. complex includes a 23-story building, completed in May 2006, that includes 16 modular laboratories, capable of being customized and reconfigured based on changing needs. The tower accommodates the Center’s programs in immunology, molecular pharmacology and chemistry, and cancer biology and genetics. A connecting 7-story structure that is under construction and scheduled for completion in 2008 will add a conference center, and a number of dry laboratories. The building was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, in collaboration with Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Partnership.

VDA provided full consulting services through construction administration for six (6) 23-stop gearless traction elevators; and eight (8) hydraulic elevators. Two (2) of the hydraulic elevators are dual roped single stage elevators serving 4 stops and 3 stops each; there is also a vivarium elevator and four (4) clean/dirty cars, all of which serve 2 stops; and a standard in-ground hydraulic elevator which will be installed in the connecting 7-story structure.
