With all the fast and furious work in Weizmann labs and the ever-changing requirements for performing cutting-edge research, the campus has no choice but to expand physically. While keeping the integrity of the lush, beautiful campus intact, building appropriate new facilities and upgrading the existing infrastructure is critical to the advancement of science.
The construction of the Raoul and Graziella de Picciotto Building for Scientific and Technical Support is advancing apace. This one building will enable the efficient use of all the Institutes buildings and labs for research purposes. The eight-story building will have five floors above ground and three below, including 563 underground parking spaces. In total, it will add some 30,000 sq m of work space to the Institute.
The renovation of the Charles Clore International House is projected to be ready in the summer of 2013. Improvements include preserving the facade, reinforcing the structure and bringing it up to earthquake and air raid standards. The construction of the Nella and Leon Benoziyo Building for Biological Chemistry has recently started. This building will encompass about 30,000 sq m, around 18,000 sq m of that lab and office space, and the rest underground parking and service structures.
