Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine opened the Molecular Medicine Research Building (MMRB) in 2009, located in Richmond, Virginia. The $71.5 million, eight-story, 125,000 square-foot biomedical research facility houses six stories of laboratory space. The MMRB is LEED® Silver certified for its status as a highly energy-efficient and high-performance building. VCU, Ballinger, Commonwealth Architects and Skanska USA of Durham, NC designed and engineered the facility to house 48 principal investigators and their staffs.
For this project, TROX USA installed active chilled beams type DID602 and multi-service chilled beams. The chilled beam system allows for high air quality and control of the indoor environment. The system additionally offsets heat generated by lab equipment.
 
The installation of TROX chilled beams contributed to the MMRB’s LEED® silver certification for efforts towards environmental sustainability. TROX beams DID602 and Multi-Service beams complemented the water efficient fixtures and low hydrocarbon construction materials used in order to achieve an energy-efficient facility. The MMRB received the Project of the Year award from Richmond Real Estate Group for an exemplary fill-in project.
