Brilliant Minds.

As a leading local, national and global center of excellence in HIV/AIDS research, ADARC needed a new, cutting-edge research environment at Columbia University that would enable scientists from ADARC to continue their world-renowned research.

“The Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center is a world-leading center for the study of HIV and Aids,” said Lee Goldman, MD, dean of the faculties of health sciences and medicine and chief executive of Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC). “Our faculty are excited about the new collaborations that will advance our understanding of HIV and how to treat and prevent this viral infection. We’re delighted to welcome them to Columbia University.”

The New & Elevated Space.

Two floors of the prestigious Hammer Health Sciences Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center were designated to be the new space for ADARC.

In collaboration with Lord Aeck Sargent, we constructed a state-of-the-art research environment that worked with the confines of the existing building while also incorporating the latest equipment and space solutions needed.


Key Attributes:

  • Premier wood laboratory casework, consisting of hand-selected white
    oak veneer
  • Fixed steel shelving assemblies with wood casework
  • Satin chrome laboratory fixtures
  • High-performance fume hoods

“For the Aaron Diamonds AIDS Research Center’s move to Columbia University Medical Center, we were so impressed with OC River’s product as well as its ability to provide a superb installation team; we awarded them the project over a lower bidder. Our decision was absolutely correct. The result was outstanding.”
