About the Project
The $41 million, 148,000-SF Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences provides cutting-edge research and information technology instructional facilities. A combination of dry laboratories and classrooms, this six-story, cast-in-place concrete structure features tiered lecture halls and seminar rooms to aid in the educational advancement of information technology disciplines. In addition to labs and classrooms, the building houses all the offices for the dean and her administration, various department administrations, and faculty, including 10 endowed chairs that are part of the Bren gift.
Originally designed as two separate buildings, the redesign consolidated the buildings, resulting in a cost savings of $6 million. The redesigned lab and classroom facility helped maintain UC Irvine’s computer science school at the forefront of technological advancement. Additionally, the team designed and built a second 6,100-SF building (as an add alternate to the project) comprising a single lecture hall and two seminar rooms. The Bren Hall project achieved a Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
