University of California-San Diego, School of Medicine, Biomedical Research Facility, La Jolla. Design: ZGF/RFD

University of California-San Diego, School of Medicine, Biomedical Research Facility, La Jolla.

Budget: $105 million.

Size: 196,000 square feet

Completion date: 3Q2013.

Project team: ZGF Architects LLP, Portland, Ore. (architect); Research Facilities Design, San Diego (lab consultant); IBE Consulting Engineers, Sherman Oaks, Calif. (mechanical/plumbing engineer); Integrated Engineering Consultants, Los Angeles (electrical engineer); KPFF, Portland/San Diego (structural engineer); Spurlock Poirier, San Diego (landscape architect); McCarthy Building Cos. Inc., San Diego (contractor)

Description: Part of an ongoing expansion plan, the five-story Biomedical Research Facility will have a function similar to the existing Leichtag Family Foundation for Biomedical Research Building at the UCSD School of Medicine. The program encompasses wet labs, open lab space, lab support, and administrative support, with core labs and mechanical support in the basement. The lab is being designed to LEED Platinum standards and is expected to be the most sustainable facility on the campus. Special features include computer-controlled exterior solar shading on the east, west and south facades. Water reuse is planned for irrigation as well as urinal and toilet flushing. MEP systems will be highly energy-efficient as well, with BIM used extensively in coordination of infrastructure.
