STATE-OF-THE-ART LABORATORIES, OFFICE SPACE, HOUSING, AND AMENITIES TO MAKE LIFE AND WORK EASIER
J2 served as civil engineering consultant for the 689-acre Janelia Research Campus which includes three apartment buildings; six single-family home lots; a 22,500 SF gymnasium; multi-purpose sports field; playground; parking; roadway improvements; and expansion of the Children’s Learning Laboratory/Day Care. J2 also served as civil engineer for the campus Apartment B and recreational trails.
J2 reviewed its workload and divided up the projects amongst design teams. The firm's design approach differed by project with seven different lead designers necessary to concurrently process the projects for approval and for construction contract award prior to the end of the fiscal year.
The demanding schedule was the biggest challenge for these projects. As a non-profit, HHMI had to identify and fund certain capital projects before the end of the fiscal year. A total of nine separate projects were identified and discussed with J2.
