Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the selection of three design-build teams to receive a request for proposals to compete for a contract to design and construct a new $750 million public health laboratory in Albany.
The new facility will replace Wadsworth Center’s aging facilities and is expected to attract approximately 1,200 life sciences jobs and generate about $2.3 billion in economic activity for the region over the life of the project.
The teams selected to receive the RFP and compete for the design-build contract are:
- AECOM Tishman/Skanska USA
- Gilbane Building Company/Turner Construction in association with HOK
- Pike McCarthy Joint Venture
The new lap, envisioned as “A Lab for the 21st Century,” will be located on Albany’s W. Averell Harriman State Office Building Campus. The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) will oversee the design and construction of the state-of-the-art facility, by working with the New York State Department of Health and Empire State Development.
