The Biomedical Innovations Building (BMI), beautifully designed by ZGF Architects, represents a new paradigm for Stanford’s School of Medicine, creating a shared research environment where Stanford Medicine’s world renowned faculty can translate medical research discoveries into treatments and cures. The BMI building will be approximately 215,500sf with four above-grade floors, and one below. Each floor will house research laboratories and light filled gathering places. The building will use a generic and flexible template to maximize efficient use of space and ease of renovation. BMI will provide space for a mix of disciplines, basic and clinical research, wet and dry labs, and leading-edge translational studies. A contemporary, sustainable design is envisioned with places for scientists to gather and actively collaborate in a variety of common spaces that will be shared throughout the building.

David Golden is a Senior Project Manager with the Stanford School of Medicine where he provides leadership on projects large and small. Prior to joining Stanford, David provided architecture and project management services through the firm he founded, DAGA. David has been an active member of the healthcare design community, is a former chair of the AIA SF Health Facilities Committee and is currently the Secretary of the West of Twin Peaks Central Council.
