Design Solutions - Spring 2020 - 43

The WVU Medicine Health
Sciences Campus is the hub
of the institute and its clinical
and research programs. The
existing Innovation Center
recently underwent a $25
million renovation to bring
expanded wet labs and other
new and critical resources to
further empower researchers.
The 60,000 square foot center
was completed last May.
The renovation
was completed by IKM
Architecture of Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania. Architectural
woodwork for the project was
fabricated and installed by
Giffin Interior & Fixture, Inc.,
an AWI member firm located
in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania.

Hickory Paneling
Natural, tactile materials
and details creates an
environment that places the
human element at the center
of the experience of the
facility, explains John Keelan
AIA of IKM Architecture. "The
objective was to create a
space that is human-scaled
and intimate but monumental
at the same time," he says.
"The experience of this facility
is at its most intense in the
atrium, a space filled with
natural light, natural materials,
and a two-story neuro-image
of the human brain, the largest
such image in existence."

"The WVU Rockefeller
Neurological Institute
Innovation Center project
included several significant
architectural woodwork
attributes, but most
stunning is the three-story,
6,500 square feet, custom
designed, quatrter-sawn
Hickory wall panel system,"
adds Jillian Klinar of Giffin
Interior & Fixture. "The system
included integral buy-out
light fixtures strategically
placed throughout the
system. Additionally, it was
slip-matched to provide
continuity, and then balance
and sequence matched
to accomplish the desired
aesthetic."
The wall paneling system
was designed as a cost
saving option for the client.
The original design included
a prefabricated system that
was expensive and had
a long lead time. To both
reduce cost and as well as
adhere to the expeditious
timeline, Giffin worked with
the architect and general
contractor to successfully
realize the vision of the
space.
