BioMed Realty Trust
Acquired by Blackstone
Zoning Analysis and Master Plan
Ardsley, New York

The MEP services in the existing central utility plant (CUP) were undersized to serve all four buildings on the 20-acre BioMed Realty Ardsley campus with sufficient electrical and mechanical capacity necessary for life science tenants in today’s market. BAM worked alongside the engineers on the following upgrades to the CUP:

  • Install a new central chilled water plant, which allowed the removal of an existing temporary chiller.
  • Replace the undersized existing electrical feeders.
  • Install new lighting, both normal and emergency.
  • Provide a new central electrical substation.
  • Replace the existing, outdated fire alarm system.

The improvements made in the central utility plant increased the overall efficiency and safety of the campus infrastructure and played a major role in helping to secure an anchor tenant on the campus. Blackstone Real Estate Parners acquired BioMed Realty Trust, continuing BioMed’s reputation as a high profile company in real estate.
