Construction Projects

What's Happening in the Next Several Weeks:

Integrative Genomics Building: Schematic Design is scheduled to be completed the end of June 2015. Final Design will be completed over the next year.

Old Town Demolition: The demolition subcontractor has begun preparation of project-specific work programs, plans, and procedures. The demolition subcontractor was issued Notice to Proceed (NTP) on June 5, 2015 following completion of requisite documents.  Initial field work is underway and includes setup of site boundary fencing, completion of characterization of building materials, sampling plans for soil characterization, and collection of universal waste materials for disposal.  Deactivation and isolation of remaining utilities (excluding fire protection systems) and abatement of hazardous materials (e.g., asbestos, lead) will follow.

Computational Research & Theory Facility: The UC funded CRT Facility is nearing completion, having achieved Substantial Completion in mid-May. Site concrete installation has been completed. Current activities include commissioning, and performing punch list walks with the stakeholders to identify and assign completion of work activities. The first computer system in this new energy efficient, 150,000 gsf facility is scheduled to be operational by September 2015.

Solar Energy Research Center: Construction contract substantial completion was achieved on January 30, 2015. Correction of punchlist items and final commissioning of building systems is continuing. Moves into the building were completed in May 2015. Interior fit-up work is continuing.

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. Two research groups have moved into building. Interior fit-up work is in progress on all floors.

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