UniversityofCalifornia,Riverside ScienceLaboratoriesI Riverside,California

This $14.4 million new facility provides a variety of multiͲdisciplinary research and teaching laboratories that will be used by the chemistry, biological and environmental sciences. It is a 42,000 square foot, threeͲstory building, with five organic teaching labs on the first floor, and ten research labs on the second and third floors. In the design of this facility, RBB achieves new identities for both the Science Laboratory and Chemistry programs. The Science Laboratories I builds upon existing contextual vocabularies along the Carillon Mall and the Pierce Hall Addition, also designed by RBB. The design provides the science precinct with a strong presence on the Mall and a new front door. In the precinct plan, areas are defined to enhance opportunities for academic interaction in the newly created courtyard and outdoor spaces. The plan is intended to provide the college with a framework for development, circulation and open space that satisfies projected space needs, supports the College’s research and education mission and contributes to the campus quality of life and environment. “We thank you for taking so much care with the detail and designing a set of laboratories so beautiful, that I am afraid to show them to others in the campus. We certainly owe this facility to our chemistry faculty…they have put up with an inferior set of laboratories for so long.” Raymond Orbach, Chancellor, University of California Riverside AIA Design Award

PomonaCollege Seaver HallNorthLaboratoryRenovation Claremont,CA

The Seaver Hall north renovation project includes upgrades to 50,000 SF of teaching and research laboratories, classrooms, faculty and administrative offices in order to provide Pomona College with state of the art science facilities. The goal of this renovation project is to create a state of the art chemistry building, allowing Pomona College to be a leading science and research Institute. While the existing labs in Seaver Hall North are functional, they are limited in their capacity to meet the increased enrollment in chemical science. A high priority is to provide a safe, energy efficient, and well ventilated teaching environment. While this emphasis led us toward the upgrade of the mechanical infrastructure, it was pertinent to realize the demands of the science research laboratories. Upgrading the laboratories is essential to bringing Pomona College to the forefront as a leader in science academia. The design team, together with the Faculty, Campus Planning Department and Maintenance Department, arrived at a design concept that allowed for versatility, efficiency, and integration of laboratories and support spaces. This program allows for adaptable spaces at the south west corner allowing for future connections to the new Biology Building at this location.

RBB was commissioned to provide a Detailed Program Plan (DPP) for a new 79,000 GSF Bioengineering building for Stem Cell and related research programs. The project was completed on an accelerated timeline in order to meet critical schedule requirements to secure state funding for design and construction. The new building site is located near the center of the campus, with limited flexibility of the existing site boundaries. Consideration was needed of accessibility from the surrounding pedestrian malls Based on careful study of the site restrictions and a survey of the Bioengineering research program requirements, six planning options were developed. Two options were prioritized and cost estimating was completed for those. The final DPP document was completed in a total of 51 days from Notice to Proceed to final State Funding Submittal. “I can't say enough about RBB. As always, you exceeded our expectations and created a document (in extremely short order) that allowed us to move the next important step in securing funding. You are extraordinarily organized, professional, and a delight to work with..” Ͳ Marc Fisher, Associate Vice Chancellor, UCSB “RBB consistently provides the best possible solution to complicated problems and has exceeded our expectations meeting our schedule needs and budgetary constraints. Ͳ Martie Levy, Director of Capital Development, UCSB


UniversityofCalifornia,SantaBarbara PhysicsandEngineeringBuildingͲ Programming SantaBarbara,California

RBB provided a DPP for a new science building to provide shared research and teaching space for the Physics Department and College of Engineering. A goal for Physics is to house all their faculty and support in one area to support their research goals. This consolidation is expected to foster better collaboration and innovation and improve the support of their programs. COE stated across the board space deficiencies in all five departments, specifically lack of sufficient quality lab space and outdated lab areas; their current dry labs cannot be renovated into wet labs due to prohibitive costs. Enhancing their common space to develop a sense of community was also noted as a priority. The UCSB Vision 2025 Long Range Development Plan limits the campus development and sets strict guidelines to be taken into consideration when developing the Master Plan. Four sites were initially selected as potential opportunities for the development of the proposed program, and test fit analysis helped to eliminate two sites. The remaining sites were analyzed and massing studies and block programs were developed to meet the project goals.
