The Brigham Building for the Future will bring 675,000 square feet of translational research and clinical space to Brigham and Women's Hospital. With occupancy planned for fall 2016, the 11-story Brigham Building for the Future will house eight floors of research laboratories, two floors of clinics, a state- of-the-art imaging facility, a conference and teaching center, and a 400-car garage, along with associated site improvements. It connects to the existing hospital campus via the "Pike," a quarter-mile-long pedestrian circulation system, which the new building now anchors. Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, the Building for the Future includes an innovative façade and massing that bring much-needed daylight into the building. The new building is designed to foster translational medicine—bringing discoveries from the laboratory bench to patients—to solve neurologic, orthopedic, and rheumatologic puzzles. Flexible clinic plans maximize collaboration between disciplines, providing the highest quality, "one-stop" multidisciplinary care for patients with complex conditions.
