The University Research Park is an incubator for biomedical research, development and marketing for the state of Oklahoma. It is located adjacent to the Oklahoma Health Center in Oklahoma City on 23.5 acres.
Formerly known as Presbyterian Health Foundation (PHF), the park is comprised of seven mid-rise building between two and six stories, with floor plate areas of approximately 25,000 to 28,000-square feet. The brick veneered and glass buildings have concrete structures able to support floor loads required by modern research and office uses. Each building has zoned heat and air conditioning.
An adjacent parking structure has space for 1,750 vehicles. The garage provides daily parking for park tenants, as well as employees of the Oklahoma Health Center, through a shuttle system. Access to the garage is provided by three, multi-level entries, one of which is accessible by visitors.
A pavilion was designed as a central food court for the research park. The pavilion serves as a connection and shelter point between the parking garage and the shuttle stop. It is the center of the campus and includes a cafe and diner, open indoor seating, meeting rooms, which are adjacent to a landscaped plaza with exterior seating.
The research park includes a conference center includes a 52-seat tiered conference room, a 20-seat executive board room and two multi-purpose meeting rooms with state-of-the-art videoconferencing, data conferencing and scientific visualizations. There is an additional 100-seat classroom-style presentation room.
Our team has been with the research park project from the start, including master planning services when the park was just a vision.
