This project is transforming four buildings on 12 acres of land into world-class research, innovation, and clinical facilities. Children’s National Hospital acquired the site, once part of the Walter Reed Army Base, as part of the organization’s vision to set the standards of excellence for the care of children.
Suffolk completed preconstruction for the Children’s National Research and Innovation Campus and is managing construction of the following projects in the four buildings:
- A 158,000-square-foot renovation to create a dedicated research and innovation building, which will house state-of-the-art research laboratories, vivarium, lab support areas, and offices.
- A 18,300-square-foot renovation to create a conference center with a 300-seat auditorium for educational programs, innovation summits, research and medical symposiums, and community gatherings.
- A 30,000-square-foot historic building renovation for an outpatient care center, which will have 24 exam rooms and 16 consult rooms. This facility will serve as the first and only primary care clinic in Ward 4.
A 960-space, five-story garage renovation and upgrade.
The campus renovation also includes new landscaping and new site utilities: water, sanitary, storm, gas, and communication.
