Design Achievement - As a recognized world leader in orthopedics, the Skills Lab and Stealth Lab for Innovation and Collaboration at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Jameson Crane Sports Medicine Institute was the brainchild of Christopher Kaeding, MD, head team physician and executive director of sports medicine, OSU Wexner Medical Center; and David Flanigan MD, director of cartilage restoration program and associate professor of orthopedics, OSU Wexner Medical Center. This lab provides teaching, instruction, and will facilitate the development of new procedures for medical students and practitioners from around the world. The facility will also offer medical equipment suppliers the ability to test and teach features of equipment used by practitioners.
Scope Summary - The 6,100-SF state-of-the-art facility includes stations for up to 14 lab groups. Ceiling elements were given detailed attention and designed to offer flexibility and simplicity without compromising functionality. The tech zone allows for utility services that support multiple configurations as well as changeable systems that allow for future adaptations to new equipment. The lab design gives everything a place and offers an uncluttered environment that provides maximum space to the users. When used as a lab, the exhaust system is activated and the room air is removed from the building to meet gross anatomy lab guidelines. The air is returned to the main air handling unit in the penthouse during normal operation. Adjacent to the lab is cadaver storage including a freezer and refrigerator; a sterile processing operation; locker rooms with a shower; and a viewing gallery. Technology-rich group teaching rooms and breakout spaces provide connectivity to the lab. The SLIC lab adjacent to the Skills Lab allows for development, testing, and evaluation of proprietary systems along with an MTS room for joint testing. The lab complies with LEED Silver certification standards. DLR Group provided architecture, mechanical engineering, structural engineering, and interior design services.
