Structural Engineering

79,000 sf

Key Info

  • Wet and dry laboratory space
  • Office space
  • Computation center
  • Warm and cold rooms for research


R+C provided structural engineering for the new Integrative Genomics Building at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The 79,000 sf laboratory and office facility co-locates the Joint Genome Institute and KBase from Walnut Creek and Emeryville into the Berkeley facility. The building contains both wet and dry laboratory space, office space for researchers and program managers, a computation center, and warm and cold rooms for research. The IGB is a facility for large scale genomics to enable bioenergy and environmental research with the goal of enhancing science through synergy of computational programs, unique characterization tools and experience, and the collaboration amongst LBNL programs.
