Revolutionizing Maryland, one air barrier at a time…
The University of Maryland Medical Research Center is the newest gem set to grace the University of Maryland – Baltimore (UMB) campus in January 2018. The research facility will stand 10-stories tall and cover 428,970 square feet in total, making it the largest building on campus. The Center will allow the University’s School of Medicine to retain its role as one of the world’s leaders in biomedical research. To foster further advancement in this department, the Center will be equipped with new technology as well as enhanced laboratory space.
Not only does the arrival of this building present opportunities as far as research is concerned, but also it acts as a huge, innovative step for the entire state of Maryland. This facility alone will bring approximately 600 permanent employment opportunities and 3,000 construction jobs to the public.
The project also acts as a framework for where the state plans to go as far as innovation and excellence is concerned. “This facility is an investment not just in Baltimore, but in the future of all Marylanders. We continue to make the better choices necessary to keep Maryland on the cutting edge of science, discovery and innovation,” said Governor Martin O’Malley about the new research center.

A large project such as this needs a building enveloping company that understands the importance of timeliness, expertise, and precision. What makes a facility, big or small, complete is the material that’s protecting it from the inside out. For the University of Maryland Medical Research Center, Cameron Building Envelope Specialists installed fluid-applied air barriers across the entire project site. These barriers will allow the building to have a controlled airflow which, in turn, complements the building’s insulation systems and allows them to function properly.
