The Stanley Building at the Broad Institute
The Stanley Building at the Broad Institute brings together hundreds of researchers from a variety of scientific disciplines to harness the power of genomics to transform our understanding and treatment of human diseases. The facility is a 12-story (15 stories with mechanical levels), 375,452 SF, lab and office building constructed adjacent to and over an existing parking structure and connected on seven floors to the original Broad facility at 415 Main Street in Kendall Square. The labs on floors 6 through 12 are planned on 26,000-square-foot, largely column-free floors with a central core for building and laboratory support.
The building uses state-of-the-art energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems to provide flexible lab space that can adapt quickly to any discovery research platform. The HVAC system was designed with many energy-saving features, resulting in more than 20% above the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 baseline standard. The site has a 100% reduction in stormwater runoff volume and removes 94.75% of the average annual post-development total suspended solids (TSS) when treating runoff. The roof has a solar reflective index of 104, which reduces heat islands and minimizes the impact on micro-climates.
