About the Project
The $33 million, 60,000-SF, five-story cast-in-place Pathology Clinical Laboratory and Office Building project was part of the master plan development for the new University of California, Irvine (UCI) Medical Center. The laboratory provides reference lab services for medical institutions across the Southern California region and consists of four floors of pathology laboratories and offices, as well as a fifth-floor shell space for future office development. Each floor plate is approximately 12,000 SF. The building has a deep canopy covering the plaza. The monumental concrete and glass stair create a dramatic entry portal where the scientists interact. The project received LEED Gold certification and was delivered two months early.
The building has a real iconic presence on campus, and its appearance coalesces the new aesthetic standard for what had been a very disparate collection of buildings. Complementing the new hospital building, the architectural skin is defined by three colors of cast-in-place concrete with punched aluminum windows and clear glass. The building’s horizontal and vertical circulation core is picked out in coppery-red metal cladding. The building creates an open plaza adjacent to an existing lawn, connecting active public spaces. A feature stair overlooks the plaza and is covered by a broad canopy.
