University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy Building

“A lot of opportunities have come our way because of the space…a great Dean, new faculty, great visibility on and off campus – I would not have imagined that it was possible that a facility could have made such a difference. Clearly it has.”

- Patrick McNamara, Ph.D. Senior Associate Dean, College of Pharmacy University of Kentucky

Lexington, Kentucky | 285,000 gsf | $127 million | 2010

Ellenzweig provided programming, lab planning, and design services for a new 285,000 gsf research and teaching building for the College of Pharmacy. The program included research labs, teaching labs, lab support, core facilities including pharmaceutical sciences and technology, a 20,000 gsf vivarium, meeting and conference rooms, lecture halls, classrooms, an atrium/commons, and offices for faculty, graduate students, and administration.

 

The new building responds to the University’s mission to provide contemporary research and teaching facilities for the College of Pharmacy, allowing the College to expand enrollment to address the shortage of pharmacists in Kentucky. The building consolidates the research and teaching expertise of the eighth-ranked College of Pharmacy in the United States, further strengthening research collaboration among the faculty (presently housed in 11 locations on and off the campus).

 

The building dedication for the Biological Pharmaceutical Complex was held on January 25, 2010.

 

Ellenzweig served as Design Architect, Lab Planner, and Instructional Facilities Planner in association with EOP Architects, Architect of Record.
