National Cancer Institute - Building 37 Modernization

Bethesda, Maryland

As part of a development management team in a public/private partnership, LEO A DALY was responsible for the renovation and modernization of Building 37 for the National Cancer Institute on the campus of the National Institutes of Health. The existing 300,000-SF laboratory research facility was inefficient, overcrowded, and outdated. All of the utility systems and finishes within the building were replaced with more reliable and efficient systems, and the interior spaces were reprogrammed and updated using current standards. From the elevator core to the building envelope, the building was modernized over the course of eight years, while remaining operational.
