Perkins+Will Recognized for Role in Public-Private Partnership

University of Washington project awarded National Council for Public-Private Partnership (NCPPP) Innovation Project Award

Perkins+Will has been awarded the 2014 National Council for Public-Private Partnership (NCPPP) Innovation Project Award for its role in the new University of Washington South Lake Union, School of Medicine.

The project was the first step in UW Medicine’s multi-phase development plan to build a biomedical research campus in the South Lake Union area of Seattle. The plan was an important development for the University of Washington and also a catalyst in the redevelopment of Seattle’s south lake union area. The campus consists of three state-of-the-art laboratory buildings and one office building. It totals 542,000 square feet, with a construction cost of approximately $362 million. Plans to continue development (Phases 3.2 and 3.3) will add two new buildings to the same city block as Phase 3.1. With the completion of Phase 3.3, the entire UW Medicine Lake Union Campus will consist of six buildings and 903,000 square feet of office and life sciences laboratory space.

The team includes National Development Council (Owner), Vulcan Real Estate (Developer), and Sellen Construction (General Contractor). The award recognizes organizations that advance the concept and implementation of public-private partnerships.
