Gates Vascular Institute Project Overview

In collaboration with both Kaleida Health and the University at Buffalo (UB), we undertook in-depth research into how design could integrate the full cycle of translational processes and accelerate discoveries for both entities. The result is a one-of-a-kind facility planned as a cornerstone of a world-class academic medical center in downtown Buffalo.

The facility stacks a translational research building over a clinical vascular institute. Sandwiched between the two is a two-level “collaborative core”—the “binder” that connects doctors and researchers from varying specialties to meet in a variety of dynamic situations to accelerate medical discoveries. The design incorporated maximum flexibility to accommodate future medical and research innovations.

The building was delivered via a public-private partnership, which saved the state of New York and the
not-for-profit Kaleida Health $20 million through the economies of a joint build while providing UB/SUNY with a state-of-the-art research facility with 32 new wet labs nearly three years sooner than the school could have on its own.
