Northwell Core Lab Honored at Building Awards Gala
At its annual event celebrating "building projects that keep Queens vibrant, sustainable and livable," the Queens, New York, Chamber of Commerce presented Northwell Health, Flad Architects, and Hunter Roberts Construction Group with a 2019 Building Award: First Place in the category of New Construction in Healthcare-Related Facilities. The oldest and largest business association in Queens, representing more than 1,100 businesses and more than 100,000 Queens-based employees, has bestowed the awards for more than 90 years.
Located on Little Neck Parkway, the 36,000-square-foot Core Lab is the complement to a chemistry-based core testing lab inside a one-million-square-foot building that houses Northwell's Center for Advanced Medicine in nearby Lake Success. The Little Neck building is a collaboration with NYC Health + Hospitals, a major part of the Clinical Laboratory of New York Alliance, which was formed with the purpose of consolidating the two systems' lab operations. The CLNY utilizes automated workflow and testing systems, helping enhance performance while lowering costs, system-wide.
"By recognizing and encouraging excellence in the design and construction of our built environment, the Queens Chamber of Commerce is helping to ensure a healthy, sustainable and attractive urban landscape that will make Queens an even better place to live, do business and raise a family," said Thomas J. Grech, president and CEO of the Queens Chamber of Commerce.
