Wistar Institute Expansion; University of Pennsylvania

The Wistar institute, located in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania campus has begun construction on its planned expansion of the institute.  The new facility will be replacing an older building in the middle of their Spruce Street complex. Construction should take about 2 years to complete.

The new 100,000 SF research addition designed by Ballinger Architects,  is part of a larger planning project done in collaboration with Ballinger.  Ballinger provided existing facility assessment, programming, master planning, and conceptual design studies in support of strategic plan objectives: to develop a space program to support significant growth in principal investigator head-count and research space; to transform the research environment into one of a world- class research institution that enhances collaboration, interaction, and innovation; to provide a modern infrastructure  that is flexible, efficient and easily maintained; to convey the institute's image and culture in the design of any new
structure while respecting the tradition and context of its urban campus.
