In September 2014, the Wistar Institute’s new, seven-story research building at 3601 Spruce Street in Philadelphia, PA opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and gala.

In addition to the design of this start-of-the-art research building, Ballinger provided existing facility assessment, master planning and programming to determine the best solution for Wistar to expand its research operations, recruit new faculty, and pursue a collaborative workplace model to support emerging areas of science.
