Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation Tower

This new eight-story tower houses BSL-2 and imaging laboratories, specialized scientific equipment, rodent holding areas, collaborative spaces, and enclosed pedestrian bridges to adjacent buildings and vivariums. It’s the first medical research facility in North America to feature 24 wind turbines to generate electricity. It also includes an energy management system and a living roof and rain garden to prevent runoff and insulate the building. This project is LEED® Gold certified and cuts CO2 emissions by more than 2 million pounds.
