The two-story Physical & Life Science Buildings were originally constructed in mid-60’s and were originally designed to house laboratories, classrooms, and faculty office spaces. The new design proposes a seismic retrofit/demolition of the interior spaces and rebuilding new a multipurpose room, new classrooms, conference rooms, meeting room, computer labs, offices, testing center and support spaces.
The four-story service tower was originally constructed in 1967 and was originally designed to house central stairs, restrooms, mechanical room, and an analog clock. The proposed design recommends renovation of all interior spaces to house new code complaint restrooms, storage and mechanical room. As part of the proposed design, 19six is recommended adding an addition between the two buildings at the tower on the upper level that will assist with creating a lobby/combined main entry for the three structures. The addition will house circulation spaces, meeting rooms, an engagement center and open read/study area. On the lower level we are proposing enclosing the existing balcony with storefronts to provide an enclosed access between the two buildings.
