The Masonic Medical Research Institute (MMRI) is located in Utica, NY, and studies rare cardiovascular diseases. Our team worked with MMRI to modernize and expand its three-story, 60-year-old masonry building to support its growth and vision. This three-phase project adds a vivarium and new advanced research laboratories, renovates a Genetics Lab Wing, enables MMRI’s diversification into other research fields, and aids in recruiting highly talented medical research scientists to the region.

IPD provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural engineering to support MMRI’s state-of-the-art equipment and systems, allowing the building to meet its research regulations and certifications. The engineering design also accommodates large equipment with reinforced floors and steel.
