This is a documentary of a tour of the Stanford School of Medicine’s Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building for Facility Engineers. The Silicon Valley Chapter of Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE) organized this tour of the Stem Cell Research facility located at the heart of Stanford University. This new facility is a $200 million stem cell research building, which the school says is the largest of its kind in the country. Chris Shay, Director of Projects, Office of Facilities Planning & Management, Stanford University School of Medicine, hosted the meeting.

Based on available information, the building features 200,000 square feet of floor space and will serve roughly 550 researchers, among them faculty members, postdoctoral scholars, students and staff members. The four-story building was constructed over a period of two years with a $43.6 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine and a $75 million donation from businessman and philanthropist Lorry Lokey, who founded Business Wire. The rest of the money came from private donations and university funds.

During this time I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients including IBM, Intel, Electric Power Research Institute, Genentech, Hewlett Packard, Advanced Micro Devices, and many others. These experiences provide me with a solid foundation for the operation and maintenance requirements, and training needs, for process-critical industrial equipment. After 18 years of consulting work, I decided to follow my passion to make movies. I took classes and started making movies. Now, we produce a wide variety of videos. I love the work!
