UNC Chapel Hill
The new 325,000 square foot Imaging Research Building and quadrangle is located on the UNC Hospital campus and will replace existing and disparate imaging buildings into one facility along with general laboratory, nanotechnology and vivarium space.
The Master Plan and site design solves many challenges associated with the addition of a large building on a closely-knit campus. The design establishes the building’s relationship to a newly formed quadrangle which must react to existing buildings and a prominent north-south pedestrian axis on campus. The site plan deals with stormwater, steam and chilled water lines, drainage, fire access and purge port issues.
