New York – The state’s Dormitory Authority released a request for qualifications (RFQ) to design and build an estimated $690 million Life Sciences Public Health Laboratory in Albany. The RFQ deadline is June 20.
The facility would allow the state to consolidate scattered Department of Health Wadsworth Center staff and resources in more than 949,700 square feet of total building space into one 763,000-square-foot laboratory campus on 27 acres of the Governor Averall Harriman State Office Building Complex in Albany.
The new facility would include a main laboratory building, trans-shipping and warehouse facility, all hazards receipt facility, central utility plant, vehicle and equipment garage, security checkpoint gatehouses and surface parking.
