New Construction Takes Shape on Campus

Photos by Rich McManus

In the photo above, site preparation goes forward at the Children's Inn at NIH on a project to expand the facility by one-third. The new wing will be built on the south side of the existing structure, some of whose windows can be seen boarded-up. The new wing — slated to open in 2003 — will provide space for 18 more families, bringing the inn's total capacity to 55 families. In the photos below, work continues on two new buildings — NIH's new firehouse (c) and the John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center (bottom). The firehouse, just a few ladders' lengths away from a county firehouse at the corner of Old Georgetown Rd. and Cedar Lane, will include 22,000 square feet and open next spring as home to the NIH Fire Department. The new Porter labs will occupy 560,000 gross square feet, or approximately the same space as three Bldg. 36s. It is to be built in two phases, with completion of the whole lab facility by spring 2007.
