About the Project
The new Caltech Chen Neuroscience Research Building (CNRB) is a $193 million, 144,780 SF, five-story building (two-stories below and three above ground). The state-of-the-art research facility will serve as Caltech’s new administrative and knowledge center for the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering. Funded by a $115 million donation by Chinese billionaires Tianqiao Chen and Chrissy Lou, the neuroscience institute will investigate the challenges in understanding how the brain works, focusing on the discovery, treatment, and development of the brain.
The design-build project includes neuroscience research laboratories and support spaces, tunnel connections, mechanical equipment, 150-seat lecture hall, conference room, a teaching lab, research administration, and offices. Construction began on the new research building in May 2018 and is expected to be completed in October 2020.
Design-build project delivery in collaboration with design partner, SmithGroup.
