The University of Maryland Medical System has selected an architectural team for the design of a new, approximately 300,000 square foot building on Lombard Street. Perkins and Will's New York office has been selected as the architect of record to lead the project. Kohn, Pederson and Fox of New York has been chosen as the design architect with Design Collective, Inc. of Baltimore as the local architect assisting on the project. The building is the centerpiece of the Medical System's Phase III, $218 million downtown redevelopment project.
The new building will house emergency services, surgical services, diagnostic imaging and women's and children's inpatient services, at a cost of between $140 - 150 million fully fitted out. This project will continue the Medical System's revitalization that began with the opening of the new Shock Trauma Building in 1989 and continued with the Homer Gudelsky building which opened in 1994. Current plans call for the new Lombard Street building to be occupied by January 2000.
Perkins and Will has the fourth largest architectural health practice in the country according to Modern Healthcare Magazine. This is their fifth project in collaboration with Kohn, Pederson and Fox which includes the master plan for the new Center for Health Sciences at the UCLA campus.
