Rendering of the Porter Neuroscience Research Center Phase II, North view 

Phase II of the Porter Neuroscience Research Center is the second part of 600,000 gross square feet of space being constructed on the sites of Buildings 35 and 36.  The first part, Phase I, is complete and occupied and makes up about 45% of the entire project. 

Construction of phase II will complete the state-of-the-art John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center (PNRC) which was envisioned as a single complex to promote world class biomedical research.  The PNRC II will be a 5 storey 306,476 Gross Square Feet (including interstitial space) laboratory, lab support, animal, imaging, office and public spaces facility that will complete the Phase II portion of the combined PNRC I and II project.  The PNRC II facility will incorporate a number of features aimed at sustainability and energy conservation.  NIH is seeking certification by the two leading green building industry third party assessors (US Green Buildings Council and Green Globes) of achievement in sustainability and energy conservation design.
Schedule/Status: Construction of the PNRC II is expected to begin in the spring of 2010 with occupancy approximately 3 years later.
