Johns Hopkins Medicine has selected Jacobs to provide project management services for the laboratory space redevelopment on its medical campus located in Baltimore, Maryland, US.
The plans will include refurbishment of The Johns Hopkins Hospital’s existing Children’s Medical and Surgical Center (CMSC).
Additionally, a new 12-storey North Tower addition would be constructed.
Originally constructed as the home for the 200-bed Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, the CMSC Building has been used for research labs as well as offices since 2012.
The latest project will provide innovative spaces for computational and wet laboratories, in addition to spaces to collaborate for clinicians, investigators and students.
Jacobs People & Places Solutions executive vice-president and president Patrick Hill said: “Jacobs values the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of research for Johns Hopkins Medicine and continue our relationship with one of the premier medical institutions in the world.
“We are committed to supporting the organisation’s mission of improving the health of the community and the world through setting the standard of excellence in medical education, research and clinical care.”
Under the contract, project management services would be provided for 531,609ft² of renovations and additions for the CMSC North Tower project.
Other works include replacement of the existing façade, research laboratories and a new entrance construction to The Johns Hopkins Hospital from Monument Street.
Construction on the project is slated for completion in 2026.
The integrated global health enterprise Johns Hopkins Medicine is based in Baltimore, Maryland.
In June last year, Jacobs won a contract to design the $582m (A$750m) Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital Stage 1 Redevelopment project in Australia.
