Construction Projects

What's Happening in the Next Several Weeks:

Integrative Genomics Building: The 50% Design Development package was completed and presented to DOE in November 2015 for approval of CD-2 Baseline. Final Design is underway and will be completed by Spring 2016 with construction expected to start Summer 2016.

Computational Research & Theory Facility: The CRT is a new 150,000 gsf office and high performance computing facility funded by the University of California and the Department of Energy. Phase I of furniture installation and people moves was completed in July 2015. Phase II of furniture installation and people moves is scheduled to complete in December 2015. The first high performance computer (HPC) was moved into the facility and operating in September 2015. Additional HPC system installation will continue through early 2016.

Solar Energy Research Center: Construction contract substantial completion was achieved on January 30, 2015.

Old Town Demolition: All abatement activities in Buildings 5, 16, and 16A are complete. Buildings 16 and 16A interior demolition-related activities are substantially completed. Universal waste removal, verification of zero energy, and utility isolation are substantially complete. Demolition of Building 5 superstructure is expected to complete in December. Demolition of Buildings 16 and 16A superstructures will commence in December. Upcoming field work includes continued characterization of Buildings 5, 16, and 16A slabs and sub- surface materials, and reinforcing of existing retaining walls. Future demolition activities include removal of Buildings 5, 16, 16A, 52, 52A, and electrical pad floor slabs, and any contaminated soils. The floor slabs of former Buildings 40 and 41 will also be removed, but neither the slabs nor the underlying soils are expected to be contaminated.

Seismic Phase 2:
Bldg. 33 General Purpose Laboratory:
Substantial completion of building construction occurred in April 2014 and CD-4 was achieved in August 2014. Moves into building were conducted May through September, 2015.

FlexLab: Construction substantial completion occurred in April 2014 and CD-4 was achieved in September 2014. Closeout of this ARRA funded project was completed June 30, 2015.
