Johns Hopkins Science + Tech Park Research Building at 1812 Ashland Ave.

Carroll Engineering provided civil designs for the construction of a 163,000 SF research laboratory building at the Johns Hopkins Science & Technology Park in East Baltimore. Primarily anchored by Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medicine, the building provides 40,000 SF of medical research laboratory space, featuring both wet and dry labs. The 7-story building is also home to the 30,000-SF JHU FastForward 1812 innovation hub, as well as JHU offices, co-working spaces, and a Starbucks Opportunity Café, which provides not only traditional retail space but also professional training for local citizens. CEI provided full civil designs for stormwater management, erosion/sediment control, local permitting, utilities, and ADA accessibility for this $65 million science and technology project.


  • Site designs included utility connections, sidewalks and curbs, and site entrances. We coordinated with Baltimore City for work within the public right-of-way.
  • Stormwater management and erosion/sediment control included sand filters and a green roof.
  • The 0.67-acre construction project is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification.
